Human - by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.


"Filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent 3 years collecting real-life stories from more than 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, he captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness."

In these days where people use the refugee crisis to reveal their ignorance and hatred, I stumbled upon this beautiful project and ended up watching all 41 portraits. I was moved by some, inspired by others. Here are my favourite ones. Because sometimes you need the reminder: being HUMAN is a beautiful thing.

Just a minute ...


... in 2015.

The year started with my grandpa passing away. The attack on Charlie Hebdo was the same week, and I went back to Oslo with a heavy heart. When Paris was attacked again in November, I felt extremely far away from my home country and quite helpless. Now, 2015 wasn't all bad, far from it, but I'm ready to turn the page.

In 2015, I read 37 books, but I didn't go to the movies as often as I'd have liked to, and I attended too few concerts. I had my portrait done by Krisatomic and I had some pretty cool hair adventures: purple hair in January and shaving my hair off in September. I attended the loveliest wedding ever and I went to AmsterdamLondonLisbon & Berlin. Not a bad year, but a rollercoaster of a year. Looking forward to 2016!
