The book NearFar Kjetil Berge is one of the most personal documents among Norwegian photobooks. Through an inherited camera Berge shows parts of life, without being intrusive. Photos from hospitals, from good moments with his father to his father near the end. His own and others' disease, a summer party. Kjetil Berge is not keen to interpret life or give the viewer solace in the book NearFar. The photographs are out of focus and with imprecise compositions he creates still sharp observations about life. If one is to summarize the book it must be that you are not alone. There are others just like you, good days, bad days, and days just to read the newspaper.
