Allemannsretten

“Freedom to Roam”

Allemannsretten is a Norwegian concept from the ancient times which means “the freedom to roam” in English. Simply defined, it is a traditional right which takes on the form of general public rights which applies to the open country, thus making it legal in most cases for people to walk through any piece of uncultivated land. This concept rings true for tourists exploring any new places for their first time, giving these visitors a sensory impression of the whole outdoor experience.

In this series, I explore the landscapes through the tourist’s eyes. The first observation is my impression of the experience while roaming through those new locations for my first time. The second observation is of other visitors embedded into these landscapes.
