Sami houses

A photo exhibition

Sami Houses is a photo exhibition developed by the antiquarian Randi Sjølie. She has worked with Sami buildings for over 25 years and in connection with the work, numerous of photographs were taken of different types of Sami buildings. These pictures can tell us something about the variation in Sami building practices over the last few centuries. In this exhibition, Sjølie has selected 19 photographs in which she feels represents the ‘voice’ of the building, and which illustrates the technical details of the buildings.

The exhibition is funded by the Sámediggi / Sami Parliament.
