Janne Amalie Svit (1978) is a Norwegian photographer with 20 years of experience as a professional photographer and is a graduate from Kent Institute of Art and Design in England and Norwegian School of Photography. She teaches photography at Sund Folk College besides working with her personal projects.

Svit work is nurtured by her relationship to her surroundings in the north, in what many think of as in the middle of nowhere.Her work can be seen as a visual diary, investigating motherhood, dystopia and the human condition. Her work has been described as Nordic Dark, mixing the staged and the observed. 

Svit also works in an artist duo with Merete Haseth. You can find her duo work here: www.svithaseth.wordpress.com
