Jeg begynte å samle på bilder av Madonna da jeg var åtte år gammel. Det var tilbake på åttitallet. Hun har samarbeidet med mange motefotografer og laget ikoniske bilder som fremdeles fascinerer meg. Min favorittfotograf er Herb Ritts. Et av mine favorittbilder er coveret av Madonnas klassiske True Blue-album fra 1986. Jeg har bilder som dette i bakhodet når jeg fotograferer artister. Det er morsomt å prøve å gjenskape ikoniske bilder. Og jeg tror at jeg har tatt Aurora Aksnes i en Madonna pose.
I started collecting pictures of Madonna when I was eight years old. That was back in the eighties. She has collaborated with many fashion photographers and created iconic pictures that still fascinates me. My favourite photographer is Herb Ritts. Among many beautiful pictures he has taken, is the cover shot of Madonna’s classic True Blue album from 1986. I have pictures like this in the back of my head when I photograph artist. It is fun to try and recreate iconic photos. And I think that I have captured Aurora Aksnes in a Madonna pose.

A Norwegian artist I really love is Lisa Aisato. Her paintings are really beautiful, dreamy, surprising and fun. A few days ago, when I was out walking the streets of Oslo, I saw her paintings in a gallery. She and her sister Haddy N’jie made a book called “Snart sover du” (You’ll soon be asleep) that’s really wonderful. And I would really recommend you to check it out.
