The Artist´s story / Kunstreren forteller

In 2007, my father, Jon Håvard Fjell, made ​​the book «The Artist’s Story,» about his father (my grandfather) the artist Kai Fjell. It is a close and personal book about Kai Fjell’s life and art, based on sound recordings and conversations collected by my father.Creating this book has been a dream my father had for many years, that he finally got the opportunity to make. It was an honor for me to be involved in the project as the photographer of the book.
