Karin Elise Fajersson is a Norwegian photographer with a Norwegian father and a Swedish mother. She has always been connected to both countries. In her childhood she moved around constantly with her family. She moved to Oslo in 1979, but has since then also lived in Spain, Argentine and Nicaragua. These nomadic traits are a source of inspiration in her images.
She now works at Oslo Metropolitan University as assistant professor in early childhood education and pedagogy. Photography is a personal expression, and increasingly connected to her work as lecturer and researcher. She lives with her husband in the center of Oslo.
