8 postcard books – 72 photos. Scandinavia in a new perspective.

During the brightest time of the year, eight Scandinavian photojournalists jumped on separate trains and went on a collective interrail trip to explore Scandinavia. The result is a playful insight to Scandinavia today, presented in the form of eight postcard books.

Seeking the familiar rather than the exotic, they went looking for stories in their own back yards: Sweden, Norway and Denmark.The eight photographers: Oddleiv Apneseth, Elin Berge, Johan Bävman, Pieter Ten Hoopen, Eivind H Natvig, Chris Maluszynski, Åsa Sjöström, and Knut Egil Wang formed new views of their home countries, sometimes challenging old stereotypes in the process. Letting their paths cross along the way, they explored and questioned their own ways of looking and telling stories as they for the first time worked side by side as photographers – making powerful use of their collective in working towards the common goal of the project.

The result is a collection of photographic stories presented in the form of postcards from the road. A playful insight to Scandinavia today, signed Moment Agency. This first volume of Scandinavian Moments demonstrates the strength of working as a group of individual storytellers, and is the start of a series of group projects by Moment Agency, Scandinavia’s leading photojournalist agency.

Moment Agency is a photographer’s agency, where all members contribute to shape the agency and its direction. Individually, the photographers have become some of the most powerful voices in documentary photography. They have received numerous prestigious awards and created acclaimed photo books and exhibitions. Together they form Scandinavia’s foremost photojournalist’ agency, producing strong visual stories anchored in the tradition of journalism but not bound by convention. Moment is represented internationally by a network of the industry’s most respected agents. www.moments.momentagency.com
