“My work generally tries to show a funny side to our everyday life,” says Norwegian photographer Helge Skodvin, whose latest series A Moveable Beast follows a collection of animal exhibits moving house.
The series started when Skodvin was on assignment at the Natural History Museum in Bergen, Norway. He explains how one day, the manager told him that the museum would be closing for five years to make way for essential maintenance work. The impending closure of the museum came as a shock to Skodvin, considering he lives 200 meters from the museum and hadn’t heard anything of the news. But he soon saw a perfect opportunity for a new project.
