Lukas Pacevicius

Who are you? – My name is Lukas Pacevicius and I come from the suburbs of Strasbourg in France. To a native French my name already reveals that my family must have international roots (Dutch on mother’s side and Lithuanian on father’s side). Both sound strange to French ears and sometimes made Frenchmen class me …

Maximilian Martin Rahn

Who are you? – My name is Maximilian, but my friends just call me Max. I am from Munich, Germany, which is close to the Alps. My family has most of its roots in Bavaria, but my grandgrandma is originally from Pommern. She went to Berlin later and had to flee from there during the …

Ellen Margaret Guyer

Who are you? – Well, my name is Ellen Margaret Guyer and in that name I guess there’s already quite a lot of who I am: “Ellen” is my grandma’s, great-grandma’s, and great-great grandma’s name. “Margaret” came from my great-aunt. I think, above all things, family defines who I am. My family’s story is also …

Alina Großmann

Anders Esager

Joaquín García Carretero

Who are you? – I am Joaquín from Spain. My hometown is Chapinería, a small village with 3000 inhabitants in which you could find pricking stone and cattle raising as the main activities just a couple of decades ago. It’s about 45 minutes by car from Madrid. I study Energy Engineering at the Universidad Carlos …

About this project:

I thought it would be nice to have a gallery of faces with lots of exchange students who came to Trondheim in January 2017. In June this gallery hopefully doesn’t only consist of pictures of strangers but of lots of good friends we will have shared tons of beautiful moments with. You can look at it in a couple of years and tell your children or your loved ones of all the fantastic people you met here.
