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 homicide rate in Norway is very low, but when it comes to partner homicide, it is higher than in comparable countries. This project explores the psychological mechanisms that cause women to stay in - or return to - violent and destructive relationships. The images capture women who have fled domestic violence and abuse, women's shelters, and inconspicuous places where women have been killed by their partners or ex-partners.
