There are a lot of abandoned houses.
Photographer Britt Marie Bai left from Oslo and started a new life in the Arctic, where documenting old, abandoned, facing away from civilization at home.
“I photographed an abandoned house in the Arctic circle in Norway for several years, says Britt Marie Bai. – After spending so much time in the North, I totally fell in love with unpredictable weather, scenic landscapes, dazzling and ever-changing light, the warmth of the people and endless possibilities. That’s why I moved! I sold my apartment, said goodbye to family and friends and started a new life in the Arctic.
It was hard to cope with the new environment and start over. Not to mention the fact that there’s snow in June and September, the snow, and at any time of the year too, snow. But I have the opportunity to spend my free time exploring these beautiful surroundings and to share stories of long-forgotten homes, making this the right decision”.
The North of Norway with its heterogeneous landscapes – the region with severe natural beauty and a wonderful place to get some privacy. And at the same time, as honoré de Balzac: “Solitude is a beautiful thing. But definitely there should be someone who would from time to time to say what a great thing loneliness”.
