In August 2008, Nicholas Counts embarked on a one year trip to Norway. The initial purpose was a study abroad trip, but what he found there was much more than books. He found a new way of life, some new friends, perspectives, and the greatest girl in the world. All the while, he documented his life with a light plastic camera called Holga. These photos are contained in this book.
I don't know why I'm writing in third person.
Coffee is my water, cameras are my crack, I buy blank paper and Zebra pens, and when I blink it sounds like a camera shutter. I'm from tiny Rhode Island, but I was having a blast in Norway for a while. I like photography and I'm majoring in Film, but I want to open a coffee shop. Don't send me pictures of spiffy old cameras please. If you do, i'll promptly hop on ebay and buy one for myself. I see life as a story that doesn't make much sense. Maybe that's why I might come across as pretty random.
