Winner 2017: Terje Abusdal

The 2017 Leica Oskar Barnack Award goes to Terje Abusdal. Born in Norway, Terje Abusdal is honoured with this prestigious photography prize for „Slash & Burn“ and receives 25,000 euros and a Leica M camera and lens.

Tradition and mysticism, provenance and belonging, facts and fiction: Terje Abusdal’s long-term “Slash & Burn” project draws a picture both mysterious and impressive of the Forest Finns, an ethnic group in Norway who live in close touch with nature.
