Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi, ( b. 1976 ) is represented by the Little Black Gallery in London but lives and works from Oslo. Her two latest series Starlets and Do Not Disturb set her distinct self portrait style.
Joining tragedy with humor in a staged narrative setting, she presents a series of tragic-comic personas from tormented suburban housewives to roller disco divas.
Linda Falang, born and raised in a small town right outside of Oslo. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Product design, and is currently situated in Sundsvall, Sweden, where she is studying for her Master’s degree in Design for all. In the future she wants to design products that are both attractive and available for everyone, with or without disabilities.
I’m a British citizen currently studying product design at the Akershus Oslo University College. At the age of 4 my parents took me to Lanzarote, which was a pretty funky place to grow up! I moved to Oslo 11 years ago, where I worked as Harbourmaster at the Royal Norwegian Yachtclub until starting studying. I haven’t really found any nieche yet, but I enjoy trying to incorporate feelings into my work and trying to design an experience instead of just a product. I’m very inspired by my surroundings.
I suppose I’m on some kind of creative journey at the moment, but I don’t really have a clue what I’m doing or where I’m going to end up. I use humour as a defense mechanism, worry too much and cry when I watch soppy movies.
