About the book
On assignment from Konstmuseet i Norr, Kiruna, Sweden, we explore the contemporary context of broken timelines through a strong and confronting portrait series where women within the Sami culture stand in focus.

During a cold winter travel to Sápmi, in the northern most region of Sweden, we underwent a prolific collaboration with Sami women of varied ages, staging and visualising individual stories and circumstances. The result is a direct and striking body of work that crosses genres through poetic and subjective truths of women who live between the tremors of identity, recognition, heritage and modern day.
