About the piece

Norrlands Riviera belongs to the series Girl From The North Country. It’s a project about leaving and being left. Nybom returned to places that she once belonged to. There is a beach in a small town called Piteå. During the summer this place is popular specially among northern Norwegians because of the weather. Cold winds are blowing when this photo is taken and Norrlands riviera is deserted.

About the artist

Linda Nybom (b. 1975) grew up in northern Sweden but lives and works in Stockholm. She studied art at Gerlesborgsskolan in Stockholm and photography at Nordic School of Photography. The darkness of life, melancholy and mystery is primary what inspires and drives Nybom in her photography. There is a subtle and evocative sense of the images that reflect her state of mind and simultaneously assume an almost painterly feeling to the photographs.
