‘Blue Reindeer’ (2010) is a project made in the mountain area of Jotunheimen, central Norway. Thanks to the generosity of a Sámi shepherd family I was able to stay for a couple of weeks and experience the migration of their reindeer herd.
Amongst Others, Jotunheimen Mountains, 2010
A reindeer made out of chicken wire and antlers wrapped in blue plastic is standing amid a herd of 2,500 reindeer. A Sámi shepherd was able to unite the animals with the new member of the herd.
2. Blue Reindeer in Herd, Jotunheimen Mountains, 2010
