Elin Hoyland - The Brothers

Elin Hoyland – The Brothers

“The brothers Harald and Mathias Ramen always lived together in the same place outside a small village in the middle of rural Norway. They never got married and never travelled anywhere. They had a small farm and worked as loggers. Their days followed a predictable and comforting routine. Little changed from year to year. The brothers way of life has now almost entirely disappeared in modern Norway. I photographed them over many years. Now they both have passed away.” – Elin Hoyland
