A few months ago me and writer Robert Veiåker published a story we’ve been working on for a while where we followed top alpinist Aksel Lund Svindal, showing some of his injuries throughout his career. We also did this interactive feature which I think became quite cool. You can see it here if you subscribe to Aftenposten. (I’ve added a preview of it in the bottom.)
Here you see the story in the paper and the interactive (next video) as well:
Was fun and challenging working on this story for @aftenposten, including a double front page and scrolling interactive video showcasing top alpinist @asvindal injuries throughout his career. Word by Robert Veiåker. Also on the team, @slottemo and Per Byhring www.ap.no/svindal

And by crappy, I mean a small, cute, cheap, unsharp and lovely camera that makes you look very un-serious when meeting one of Norway’s most popular and famous people, the fotball legend Ole Gunnar Solskjær. A man that has scored 126 goals for Manchester United during his time there from 1996-2007.
But I wanted to go past the traditional expression we have when photographing our celebrities. I wanted the series to look more of a family album of a everyday man living in Kristiansund, Norway. Our goal was to accompany him from Molde where he is the coach of Molde FK and to Kristiansund, where he lives.
The choice of look I did have to defend a few times in our editorial department, but it’s really great that I got the green light and I was able to do the shoot the way I intended.
Assignment for VG, and you can read the story here. Words by Monica Flatabø.
The town Shchastya, with it’s name meaning happiness in Ukrainian, has during the last three years been pulled between Ukraine, Russian-backed separatists and local Cossacks.
We spent a few days with the towns 16-years-olds during a week of prom, exploring abandoned houses, smoking without their parents knowing it – and heavy shelling.
