Without question, the Norse gods were on our side for SLIDELUCK Oslo III on the night of Thursday, May 15, 2014, at at Fisk og Vilt . The sunshine held clear and strong until late in the night. The harvest was bountiful and the table abundant. Fair maidens and strong warriors from kingdoms near and far filled the room. The slideshow was a divine celebration of Norway’s artistic strength. Music shook the afterparty like Thor’s hammer. And rather than bloodshed, it was Brooklyn Brown Ale and Brooklyn Lager that flowed in copious amounts.
There was excitement and expectation in the air as the entirety of this prosperous nation was preparing to celebrate my birthday (and their 200th anniversary) just 36 hours later. Flags were beginning to appear in the streets around Fisk og Vilt – where Slideluck was held – and the words “Gratulerer Med Dagen” or “Happy Birthday” were on everyone’s lips.
Laara Matsen, photo editor of the celebrated D2 Magazine selected 20 amazing photographers to participate. DJs Kent Horne, Ron Like Hell and Strangefruit provided some great tunes until the wee hours. And Knut Bry brought his famous handshake and the kind of fresh salmon lox that one would only expect to find in Valhalla.Posted on
