My name is Aldona Pivoriene and I am a photographer from Oslo. My aim is to capture small, intimate details, to show the world in peaceful and quiet form.
As you look through my photographs, I hope they tell my story and give you a sense of who I am.
I am by nature, quiet and observant. I am sensitive and a romantic at heart and photography is how I speak…how I express myself best.
My childhood summers were spent surrounded in nature.. in endless fields and forests… My grandparents’ farm in northwest Lithuania was a vast playground and wonderland for me and where I believe I became truly inspired. I was enthralled with nature… to me it seemed such a simple beauty, yet so complex in its existence..the sights, the smells, the sounds, the colours, the beautiful details…all of these layers to create this simple and wonderful place that I so adored.
I am sensitive and a romantic at heart and photography is how I speak…how I express myself best.
The other seasons were spent in downtown Vilnius City. The small, charming streets and quaint yards were inspiring for me, as well. So much beauty and charm in such a small space!
After finishing my studies and beginning my professional career, I worked for a wonderful Nordic company that had very strong values and culture and profoundly influenced my future decision to move to Norway… with no clear plan or idea. Only the desire for new challenges and change. In Norway is where I found my utopia and my heart bloomed. Norway gave me the same inspiring feeling I felt as a child on my grandparent’s farm and I fell madly in love with photography and the ability to capture this feeling for not only my own memories but to share with others.
I find a true joy and freedom in being able to express myself, through photographs…and share not only the images but myself, with you.
