With the band

We met Dani (18) while he was hanging out with the Fitts For Fight-girls, and immediately noticed his fab do-it-yourself tote bag with a dinosaur print on it. The print was apparently made with a stencil and spray paint. We want one of those.


From now on, we'll try to "publish" a new picture each day - so do stop by to check out the updates.

Fuck off and die

Aurora (21) and Chiku (21), or by Bergen measures 25. Together, they are Fitts for Fight, who played their first show in Bergen 04/26. Later that day, they were headed to a rave called the Fix, those lucky bastards.

This Saturday was a very special day in town. Every street was occupied by a hundred-man-marching-band. And they were all dressed in tuxedos. It was quite a sight. Well, later that day we ran into Jo (54), who works at the publishing company Bodoni. "I'm on my way to a party. We're celebrating the 150 year anniversary of Nygaard's Battalion at a pub."

The expression "marching band" was the best English one I could find for what we call "buekorps" in Norwegian. It's quite a Bergenesque phenomenon. They are...not bands. They march, but only use drums, and not trumpets and such.

Cherry baby

You have no idea, we really had to chase this girl around the corner to get a picture of her. Our attention was immediately brought to her scarf and bag, which were both glowing with all that good ol' retro-feeling. Linn (20) studies art and often shops at the local goodwill-store, Fretex. "I mostly like to shop when I'm in foreign countries."

Bright on a dark day

After running around the city for two entire hours, looking for people to take pictures of, we were ecstatic when we ran into Victoria (19) and Inga (21) from Lithuania. They are both currently based in Norway. Victoria works as an au-pair, while her friend Inga works at a designstudio. Do notice the lovely details of their apparel.

Riding through the city on a bike all day

When we walked by a convenience store, Øyvind immediately caught our attention. Apparently, he "stole" his bike from his grandma's barn. "The bike, in spite of it's coolness, is not that practical - with it's two gears and all."

Working nine to five

We caught Hanne (20) on her way home from work. She works at a shoestore (check out her cool sneakers) and she also studies art. "I play in a band called List [we thought it was particularly hard to spell] - it's a two-man show."

A walk in the park

The conveniently named Marie (15), Marie (16) and Maria (16). The girls are all part of the indie/rock/punk-band Razika (check out their Myspace!). "We're inspired by everything rave, indie. And we like to mix secondhand and new stuff."

Pretty In Purple

Kine (19)
is a student at Folkehøgskolen in Bergen. "I like to match my clotches, and I'm more preoccupied by the whole outfit, rather than just focusing on one piece of clothing." As you can see, Kine likes colours.
