: Photojournalism in Scandinavia is of a high, international standard. Especially Danish photographers have won several prices in World Press Photo and other international competitions during the past ten years. Some of the best up-and-coming photographers participated in a series of Master classes in Norway in fall 2008. This book is the result of this work. The former president of Iceland, Mrs. Vigdis Finnbagadottir, writes in her foreword: The photos of the young photographers give us a broad, but also sharp and untraditional view of the Nordic welfare states and its people. Their pictures will certainly inspire us to reconsider our attitudes and ideas about the welfare state and democracy. From this we can get inspiration for our visions about the future.
