Marion Aaserud Dahlen is a 26 year old photographer born and raised in Norway. She grew up on a farm with her parents and two siblings in the countryside. Growing up she always had an interest for the world around her, an interest that still resides with her to this day.
She has been trained as a photographer at the Norwegian School of Photography with specialization in editorial and documentary photography.
Over the last few years, Marion has documented and told the stories of others by highlighting different aspects of today’s society. She is particularly interested in current affairs and hope that her work creates more openness, and can serve as an entrance for people to learn more about what is happening in the world today.
