Exhibition "Åtte årstider" (Eight Seasons) in Hammerfest
The photographer Torbjørn Jakobsson at Vesterbottens Kurieren in Umeå has followed a young family of reindeer herders for a full year. Through the slaughter of animals in the autumn, moving of the herd across land in winter and the branding of new calves come spring, we are given a unique insight into a culture and lifestyle that few are familiar with.
The exhibition “Åtte årstider” (Eight Seasons) opened on the 2. June 2012 at the Museum of Reconstruction for Finnmark and Northern Troms, located in Hammerfest. Mayor Alf E Jakobsen performed the opening.
