Thank you, I wrote an explanation on my website: This collection of self-portraits was taken as part of a project revolving around identity. Heavily influenced by realist painter Edward Hopper, I wanted to photograph feelings of resignation, boredom and solitude in an urban environment. They are a comment on urban life, but also personal, borrowing elements from my own life.
They're quite personal for me, obviously, but it was something I wanted to do as I just moved to London from a small Norwegian town little over a year ago, and I wanted to make a series that were about that. I mentioned diCorcia, he's got a lot of ambiguity in his photographs, something slightly disconcerting about them, which I really like and tried to go for as well.
