LOVE AND ABUSE (2019 - 2020)

Up to four out of ten murders of women in Norway are committed by a current husband, partner, lover or ex-husband. The murder rate in Norway is very low, but when it comes to partner murders, the rate is higher than in comparable countries. The Love and Abuse project explores the psychological mechanisms that lead women to stay in - or return to - abusive and destructive relationships. The photos show women who have escaped domestic violence and abuse, women's shelters, and inconspicuous places where women have been killed by their partners or ex-partners.
