The Brothers, a collection of photographs—as well as a book by published by Dewi Lewis—by Norwegian photographer Elin Høyland, is a quiet and touching look at two brothers who lived together in a small hamlet in rural Norway into their final days when in 2007 the eldest, Mathias (five years Harald’s senior), passed away.

Photographed in a small village called Vågå in Norway, Høyland captures the brothers in and around the house they share, working or in repose. In a photograph of the men seated shirtless on a bed—similar in pose, gaze, bushiness of eyebrows—one is immediately transported to the same image that probably exists of the two of them as boys, doing as they always have, right next to each other, comfortably.
