Artist Statement: RESTORE is a project about ancient places of worship. Most of these architectural masterpieces are located near the centre of the city and too often the contemporary urbanization has been sadly unscrupulous on them. The aim of the project was to bring them back to the origins. The influence of the modern urban elements attempts to be as much as possible controlled by the technical choices and the radical postprocessing/retouching approach.

Where are your favourite places to explore in Norway? Tell us a little about them.
Bergen is the prettiest city on the country. It’s full of rain, art, nice people, colorful umbrellas and beautiful flowers. It’s also surrounded by seven small mountains, which makes it so foggy, green and just so gorgeous. It’s a city in the middle of nature.
Jotunheimen national park is the home to the talles mountains and a lot of glaciers here in Norway. It has a lot tourism, but it doesn’t kill the charm. It has small lakes, rivers, plenty of waterfalls and tall mountains that almost always has snow. It’s the heart of this country, and also what triggers our nationalism. It makes me feel so small and insignificant, but it makes me feel free in so many ways.
Lindesnes is a small town at the point furthest down south here. It has a famous, beautiful lighthouse, and you can se the ocean and all it’s powers, with the waves crashing and hugging the shore. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been, and I love going back there.
