A little about you- I'm an aspiring photographer/student, born in Oslo. I was raised in the country side but returned to Oslo last fall. I've been taking photos using film for approximately 2 years, mainly using Polaroid since spring 2009. I'm currently on my last year of Norwegian high school, studying social studies, french and english. I'm also working on my portofolio and school applications, and will hopefully publish a small book/fanzine by the end of November. I'm leaving Oslo for Paris or London next year, if I get accepted at any schools.
