BRYNHILD BYE-TILLER (b. 1968) is a Norwegian visual artist who alternates between a narrative expression in documentary photography and participation (Socially engaged photography). The documentary work is based on issues like gender, social justice and migration. The participatory work are site specific, public and sometimes ephemeral. Participants are migrant women, asylum seekers, refugees, health care workers, cleaning workers, kindergarten workers and others. Project partners are public institutions, organizations, associations, colleagues, groups and others. – A lot of what I do is a fight against injustice. I try to give a voice to those who are not visible, to break down stereotypes and boundaries between us and them. And somewhere between taking photos of people and inviting them to participate, I find a raw material for producing and developing art.
