So, how do you think you’re doing
So, how do you think you’re doing are photographic novelettes, and they are driven by the thoughts and desires of the chief figure, the photographer herself. Particular to her approach is the incorporation of textual coaching techniques that expose the complexity of relations in general and just how difficult it can be being yourself. (Journal, 2008)
Nykter tells Liv’s story on rehab. Liv is a fictional character, and her way out of addiction is based on interviews with several former drug addicts. (akP, 2010)
The Norwegian journal Objektiv is a gallery in journal format, started and run by Nina Strand. Its mission statement is to create a time-capsule on where contemporary lens-based work is today. During its three year run it has invited emerging artists to show projects that expand the medium and asked people within the field to write insightful, provocative essays on what and where this art form currently is. Objektiv feels this medium can and should be constantly challenged, and is in continuous debate on what lens-based art really means and why we need a journal for it.
