Rune was born in 1978 in the town of Bergen, Norway. This is also where he has had his photographic base the last couple of years. However, his inspirational muse was found through the encounter with the rugged coastal landscapes of his home Island of Vigra, outside the town of Aalesund. His family have lived in this area for many generations, and growing up here has given him a strong bond to these melancholy, windswept coastal landscapes. This was where his photography started, and he has since then ventured out to explore most of Norway’s far- stretched western coastline, as well as the alpine areas along the sea front. He has been to the Faroe Islands, Iceland and other parts of the far North, coincidentally keeping within the realm of the Old Norse culture. A journey on which he intend to continue, including destinations such as Greenland and Svalbard.
