Hardcover, half cloth bound, edition of 500 copies, design by Eivind H. Natvig and Linn Reier, text by Gro Dahle (poet).

"Du Er Her No / You Are Here Now is Eivind H. Natvig’s vision of his homeland, Norway. It is a Norway devoid of the familiar clichés of beautiful fjords and beautiful blondes. Instead, it is a country full of darkness, humour, colour, and wild juxtapositions.
In 2007 I began shooting images of Norway, not assignments or images with commercial value. Not even images with a distinct purpose, but a visual relief. Photography made from a true joy in discovery of Home; a country I had barely visited. In 2011 it took over and I spent 12 months in a state of self-imposed homelessness on the road.
The images in Du Er Her No / You Are Here Now are hard to categorise. They linger somewhere in-between the genres of documentary and fine art. Known objects and situations are re-invented under Natvig’s lens, showing us what we know but in a way that we don't. It is an intimate take on a wonderful and strange society, even for a Norwegian."
