People we’ve been, people we’ve yet to become

When I saw the gallery «11 Best Larping Pictures From Around The Globe«, I thought it’d be cool to do a similar thing with Norwegian larp photos. I did a bit of crowdsourcing on Facebook, and the images below are some of the ones that turned up.

I’m in no way implying that these are the very best larp photos from all Norwegian larps ever, they’re just the one’s that I was tipped off about and liked enough to post here. There are certain larps and photgraphers I’d very much like to see represented here, but that’d demand more research than I’m currently able to do.

If you don’t want your photo or image to appear here, please get in touch at ole.peder.giaever [] gmail.com
