In early summer 2014, Øystein Haugen decided to document his summer in video form. As he states in his video’s description “I brought my camereas everywhere I went”. From there his idea grew into one for a timelapse tribute to his home country of Norway. A friend composed the perfect soundtrack, which evokes a sense of longing for a homeplace. The film highlights Norway’s rugged natural landscape, its rocks, hills, fjords and green plains. Credit: Vimeo/Austen Haugen
