Last week, I blogged about the opening of an exhibition in Trondheim by a photographer Terje Visnes who must have taken thousands of pictures for the local newspaper Adresseavisen over the years. He had taken pictures of one of my salads two years ago:
I was chuffed then that he should choose one of the pictures taken that day for the exhibition and, naturally, had to go along and see it for myself! I visited unnanounced today and, to my surprise, Terje had also popped in, so there was an opportunity for a photo and a chat…and it turned out that Ingrid who runs the gallery knows my artist daughter….
The exhibition was nicely put together and the key to the salad ingredient picture (see the following link: https://www.thinglink.com/scene/536181539210264576) was made available to visitors and was apparently quite popular – you can look at the picture and guess what the vegetables are and check afterwards their identity! And of course there are several other great pictures that Terje has taken over the years on show!!
That photo shoot in my garden turned out to be an expensive day…as I just had to have one of the few copies that are being sold :) If you’re into vegetable diversity art, you’ll have to be quick to get one of the remaining pictures!! Perfect for better restaurants!

On 10th June 2014, journalist Hilde Østmoe, with photographer Terje Visnes, interviewed me for regional newspaper Adresseavisen’s Saturday magazine UkeAdressa. It was for a special extended article about urban growing!
I had hoped this post would be ready before Terje Visnes’ exhibition this week in Trondheim, but I just missed the “deadline”. I don’t know if one of these photos were used as I also couldn’t make it to the exhibition at the last minute! I remember being impressed by his work that day!
…and Terje made this wonderful animated picture of the salad ingredients….if you hover with your mouse over the picture the (Norwegian) names will appear: https://www.thinglink.com/scene/536181539210264576

My first ever blog post was also featuring this salad on June 29 2014: http://www.edimentals.com/blog/?p=43
Below are pictures I took during the photo shoot in my garden!
