STAFETT is a project based on a collaboration between Danish artist Tomas Lagermand Lundme, Swedish artist JH Engström and Norwegian artist Nina Strand. Together they produced the art fanzine Militær from 2006-2009, a zine where all the invited artists submitted their own work within a shared concept. The project was meant to be a common ground for Scandinavian photographers. On May 1st 2016, Lundme and Strand invited five other artists to participate in an artistic relay. A shared mail thread from May 1st 2016, which officially ended on May 1st 2017, is the starting point of STAFETT as a publication and was also an exhibition at Fotogalleriet from 09.02.2018-15.02.2018. Upcoming is STAFETT II and STAFETT III with the support from Nordisk Kulturfond.

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 showed photographs from the trip and opened on TM51 Window Gallery in Oslo the 11th of September in 2015. The book, published by Journal in a Norwegian and an English version, was launched at the opening. See more of the book here.

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.
