Just kidding. I’m sure that was not voiced in any kingdom!
One glorious week in Stavanger where we kick started the
Neighbourhood Challenge project which is being promoted by Shahrazad
where Norwegian artists and non-Norwegian artists collaborate on a
Anita and I didn’t really have Shahrazad in mind when we planned to
make foto-poem books on the ICORN cities in Norway. But when it got
serious, in the sense that we started to tell people about it, Sharahzad
came forward to say that they would sponsor us partially.
So last week was the beginning of what looks like a very exciting
work. We stopped strangers on the streets and asked if we could take
their photos, explaining that it was for a book on Stavanger. Ninety
seven percent happily posed for us. When we bumped into some of them the
next days, we were like old friends, greeting each other, exchanging
addresses or parting with the words, “We’ll talk on Facebook!” What a
rich experience this has been. If the other cities are going to be half
as friendly, wow, we could do this for a lifetime.
