About this image

The picture was taken on a grey February morning. Vigdis was home from school with a cold and I came to visit her in her apartment. I asked her to sit in the light, she dried her eyes and sat still for a couple of minutes and I took her pictures. She is my oldest friend, we met in kindergarden and have stuck together since then. For twenty years we have seen each other or called each other every day. Life would be so much harder without her.
