Tora Wolff is a pseudonym I created a while back, for a column I was supposed to write about Norway, but which never went ahead. Instead of ditching what I thought was a pretty damn fine tile, I decided to hang onto it, and use it for something in the future.
As it happens, the ‘future’ arrived, and I decided Tora Wolff would represent my photography, video and other artistic endeavours.
Tora is a Norwegian name meaning thunder. In old Norse it would have looked like this: ÞÓRA.
Here’s some rather lovely information that I discovered about the name after choosing it.
People with this name have a deep inner need for quiet, and a desire to understand and analyze the world they live in, and to learn the deeper truths.
For Tora Wolff I needed a distinctively Norse logo, so enlisted the help of a friend, Phil Robinson of Níðhöggr Studio, who came up with the impressive designs you see here.
I’m insanely busy at the moment, preparing for my return to Norway at the beginning of July, so I don’t expect to get a lot of material uploaded. However, once I’m back on the right side of the North Sea new work will rise to the surface.
