Being converted into skate parks, sheep sheds, or bought by other christian denominations, the traditional Norwegian prayer houses are about to disappear. Built in the latter half of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, as "the great awakening" swept across Norway, these buildings were found in every village. They were places of worship and social gatherings, hallmarks of the pietistic revival movement. In 1974 there were about 2.600 of them, spanning from Lindesnes in the south to Vardø in the north, but the last decades they have been abandoned en masse. No one knows how many are left.

Overlyssalen (Fredrikstad library)

“Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity” is a continuation of the conversation begun by the seven women photographers of VII when they first met nearly a year ago after VII voted in six new female members. The exhibition is a reflection of their commitment, with the agency’s support, to help move forward inclusive conversations about gender, power, and representation.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is a type of blood cancer that is 100% curable.But in my country, Bangladesh, most of the affected children dies because their families cannot provide proper treatment which is very long and expensive. Whenever I went to visit these children, I always talked and played with them a lot. I asked so many questions just to know about their feelings and I often found a deep and dark shadow behind every smiling face. It seemed like they did not have any faith in miracles anymore. Instead I started to ask them what they wanted to be if they got magical powers. They surprised me by their answers. I decided to give them magical power through my photographs. »

Jag Chobi were all taken by NaSaKa, also known as Burma Border Security Forces, to systematically control the Rohingya population since 1991. On the front of the photos, the family members are depicted next to a number and the name of their place of residence, while on the back there is a stamp with the signature of Burmese officials. The population census was randomly carried out by NaSaKa, about twice a year and only for the Rohingya population.
