About

Almost 200 years ago, Norwegians settled down in Illinois, US for the first time. How do you keep your Norwegian heritage and culture 200 years after your ancestors arrived, and your original culture is on the other side of the earth?

I have started the work of making a photo documentary about the people in the small town of Stavanger, Illinois. 10 houses, 20 people and a church. Who are they? And how is the everyday life in Stavanger and the sorrounding area?

During the time the project has expanded, and is now including the surrounding areas and the people connected to Stavanger, Illinois.

The funds are going to be used on one last trip to Stavanger, Illinois to finish the project. Because one day it may be too late.

Risks and challenges

One of my goals is to portrait every person living in Stavanger, IL. I have not been in touch with everyone, and there is a possibility of some saying no to participate. I also want to have a group photo.

With so few people involved, it is really important to get all of them or as many as possible to be a part of the project.
