About

 

Kristin Linnea Backe is a photographer living in Oslo, Norway. 

"Making pictures is a way of life for me. I picked up a camera, and knew it was home. I feel a need to see the images of the day to day life that surrounds me, right down to the smallest detail. I make pictures everywhere I go, holding onto what I see in my mind or with a camera. For me photography is a way to watch the rhythms of the world as it dances through the seasons and as a way of engaging with its secrets."
