Norwegian b. 1981



Andrea currently bases herself between Berlin and Oslo. For the past few years, her focus has been on the North, where she explores the intimate life and resilience of people living in remote and inaccessible environments. Her work has a strong political view, rooted in the social and anthropological issues related to globalisation, identity and cultural uniqueness.
