LUI - Løer i Leveld og Vats /Small barns in Leveld and Vats, Norway
I have been traveling up and down this valley regularly since I was a boy. The small, solitary and sunburned barns on each side of the road have always fascinated me. They resemble one another but each one is unique. The barns no longer have the same justification as modern techniques make them redundant. Some are restored and used for storage, the rest will sooner or later collapse. The images are made as a reminder to me as an architect that small anonymous buildings can be important. I look at them as old friends and to me the valley will not be the same without them.
