Dr Strand is the title of an exhibition and a book about the late doctor, feminist and activist Kitty Strand. The personal picture-memoir is told by her daughter, Nina Strand. Kitty and Nina were planning a journey across the U.S. that they never had time to take before Kitty passed away in 2001. In 2012 Nina took the trip together with her own daughter in order to revive her mothers thoughts and ideas - for one last time.
The exhibition shows photographs from the trip and opens on TM51 Window Gallery in Oslo on the 11th of September. The book, published by Journal in a Norwegian and an English version, will be launched at the opening.

The Scandinavian journal Objektivis a biannual art publication with a focus on photography and film, founded by Nina Strand. When we launched the very first issue six years ago, our mission was to act like a time-capsule, documenting where contemporary lens-based art is today. We adopted a gallery-in-a-journal format, where we could show, discuss and challenge photography, film and video art. Since the beginning we have asked artists to reflect on the medium in conversations with other artists, and for every issue we have invited an artist to make an exhibition within the magazine.
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)
Militær (2006-2009) is a zine for Scandinavian photography, edited by Tomas Lagermand Lundme, JH Engström and Nina Strand.
