Trained as a journalist, photographer and artist in Oslo, Bangkok, San Francisco and Birmingham, UK my calling is to tell true stories and create images that are communicating a social commentary. After several years working for the mainstream press, both as a news reporter and as a photographer with little time to go in depth on individual projects I started collecting stories about individuals with gender identity issues. These projects turned into the books "The Women of San Quentin - Soul Murder of Transgender Women in Male Prisons", "The Boy Who Was Not A Lesbian & Other True Stories" and "I Am, Therefore, We Are".
I am based in Berkeley, Oslo and Lucca.
