Last week I was shooting a wedding in Olso Norway. I arrived there only one day after the blast. The devastation was enormous as we could all have seen in the media.
People were walking around with a look of disbelief on their faces. It seems very strange that something like this can happen in a city that seems so organized, welcoming and so friendly. That that act of one crazy man can cause so much grief.
On the other side of the city, near the port there are still traces of broken glass to be found. That must have been about 2 km’s from the blast. On Sunday, people were sitting on benches reflecting on what had passed two days earlier. Everyone was still in shock and it seemed so surrealistic that something like this had happend in such a safe country like Norway. A country where people living outside the city don’t always lock up their cars, leave the garage door open, have a front door key under the mat and young children can play carefree outside .
My heart goes out to the nation and all the parents that lost a child and every child that lost a parent.
