Edvard Munch's Sister

She was Edvard Munch’s little sister, Inger Munch, and she was so excited by the river Akerselva that she photographs it from start to end. This pictures became a book published in 1934. She wrote in the book: “When my brother spent his Earliest youth year in Fossveien 7, part of his first paintings from the view and surrounding area is included in the book. “Edvard Munch wrote when he received a copy of the book: “Dear Inger – Thank you for Akerselven. It looks very pretty. Congratulations with the success.”

Tjuvholmen - Thief's Isle

Tjuvholmen (Thief’s Isle) is located on a peninsula sticking out from Aker Brygge into the Oslofjord. It is located east of Filipstad and south of Vika. At the tip of the peninsula, next to the sculpture park, is an outdoor bathing area. The water leads out to the Inner Oslofjord. The area was bought by the shipyard Akers Mekaniske Verksted in the mid 19th century, who planned to build a drydock there. Instead, it was bought by the municipality. It is part of the Fjord City urban renewal program. This program has seen the opening of several art galleries, amongst them the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art and the Gallery Haaken. Tjuvholmen skulpturpark, next to the museum, was created by Renzo Piano.

 

Nobel Peace Center - Generation Wealth

Documentary photographer Lauren Greenfield grew up in Venice, a very rough Los Angeles neighbourhood in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

She eventually realised that the thirst for money, celebrity, beauty and sexual capital has become an all-consuming obsession for people of all ages and classes, irrespective of nationality.
