THESE WERE NOT CHOSEN (2011) was an art in public space project produced during Trondheim Open 2011* (NO). It was a collaboration between me, the local newspaper Adresseavisen and the public. I got an assignment as a photographer in a typical news story. One photo was selected by the photo editor and the journalist in Adresseavisen and printed October 8th. The other images which was not selected and the one who was selected, was presented to the public at different locations in Trondheim. The public could vote for the picture they thought was best suited for the story. The majority of the public selected picture labeled G with 21 votes. The newspaper chose picture labeled A with 17 votes.

The story presented in the paper told the story about two local immigrant women from Liberia who were very proud of their President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, who recently received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011. The news about the Nobel laureate breaked that day. The title of the story was: "We are very proud".
