Knut Skjærven

My name is Knut Skjærven and I live in Copenhagen, Denmark. I was born in Bergen, Norway.

I work with photography both with a camera and in texts. I do educating too. I even hold degrees in communication and philosophy from Bergen University (B.A.), Norway, and Copenhagen University, Denmark (M.A.).

I took an interest in street photography in 2010. I have kept the interest since then.

Here are some of the project and sites that I have initiated since 2010.


Berlin Black and White (2010); Phenomenology and Photography (2010); The Europeans (2012);  Street Photographer’s Toolbox (2012); The EDGE: Contemporary Street Photography in Europe (2013).

Barebones Communication was initiated in 2007 (The present site is an update and a redesign of that first blog).

Social Sites:
On Every Street (2011); The Europeans (2012); Knut Skjærven Street Photography 2012; Street Photographer’s Toolbox 2012;  Leica Street Photography (2012); The EDGE (2013).

Workshops & Summits:

Coming up workshop:

  1. Hi

    My name is Mary Edwards and I’m a doctoral student at the University of Florida studying educational technology. My cohort of doctoral students is creating resources pages using google groups and I’m designing a page about phenomenology and the phenomenological approach to research.

    I really like your venn representation of phenomenology and request permission to add it to my page (image attached as a bitmap for your reference). Our google group site is limited to Ed Tech doc students and requires an administratively distributed password.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  2. Thank you, Mary, for your kind request.

    Please feel free to use the venn representation of phenomenology as long as you respect the copyright protection. I am happy so see the barebones communication effort spread around.

    I am thankful, and honoured, that you find it of such a quality, that you are able to use it, with you fellow students, at The University of Florida for your doctoral degree.

    Please stay tuned to the blog. There is much more to come.

    Good luck with it.

    Best wishes
