As a young boy, renowned Norwegian photographer Bjørnar Øvrebø often played along the inaccessible and unknown banks of Oslo's longest river, the Alna. Memories of this time inspired his latest book. For four years he photographed the hidden sides of the gloaming forestal landscape, which is often overlooked by most. His large-format photographs convey the unique beauty found in these mystic water meadows. The accompanying text by Torgeir Rebolledo Pedersen, one of Norway’s foremost poets, further enhances the fascinating and wondrous river Alna – even for those who have yet to see it for themselves.
