Time is never still and life is constantly changing. Things, memories that once were close are now distant in our minds, like a carpet of snow, slowly dissolving. The untarnished nature and persistent people have worn a new coat: wind, rain, and snow sculpting their impressions, leaving footprints in my mind. 

This project examines traces of memory within Hvaler, a small archipelago tucked away in the southeastern corner of Norway. The small community of 4,000 is known for its large fishing fleet and preserving of the surrounding nature. The collection of photographs represents reflections of memories during the different times I have lived on the island.
