Orsolya Haarberg

Photographer and interior designer Orsolya Haarberg’s love for nature and the Nordic light is expressed in all her creations.

Orsolya is a multiple award-winning photographer. Her accomplishments include numerous international exhibitions and the publication of four stories in the US and international editions of the National Geographic magazine. She has published four coffee table books with photographs from Iceland, Lapland and Laponia World Heritage Site in Sweden. In her current project “Fjell” she focuses on Scandinavian mountainscapes.

She is from Hungarian heritage and is a landscape architect by training. She turned her passion for photography into a profession when she moved to Norway in 2005. After a long period of almost solely focusing on her photography whilst traveling, she has recently settled down in Vågå and established Fjellheimen Galleri in 2020.

Orsolya also designs and creates handcrafted items from raw materials collected locally. Old wood, reindeer antlers and wool are her favorite materials that she brings into life by crafting functioning pieces which create a unique ambience in the modern home. In the project “REiN – naturally Nordic”, Orsolya immersed herself in creating standout pieces using reindeer antlers – collected in Jotunheimen – as raw material and for aesthetic inspiration.
