March 2012: FOTOGRAFI Magazine, Norway – Issue 02-2012.

FOTOGRAFI publishes one image from one of their readers in each of the six annual issues.  The magazine is the second largest photography magazine in Scandinavia.

“The photo is from Oslo and we recognize the tram, the snowy weather and the typical Oslo mood. It is strange how a photograph can bring out so many memories and associations for dedicated Oslo inhabitants. But it is a good photograph anyway.”

January 2012: FOTOGRAFI Magazine, Norway – Issue 01-2012.

FOTOGRAFI published an article about five Norwegian female photographers invited to exhibit in Argentina throgh the WPGA (World Photography Gala Awards).

“The Wordwide Photography Gala Awards (WPGA) is an international organization which annually arranges several photography competitions under the same umbrella. Among them are the Julia Margaret Cameron Award, Jacob Riis Award, and the Pollux awards. Five Norwegian women have participated the last few years and achieved both prizes and honorable mentions. They have now been invited to exhibit in a biennale exhibition in Buenos Aires. The exhibition is showing selected images from the last two years of competitions.
The exhibition Worldwide Photography Biennal Exhibition opens January 19th this year and will be open until February 17th. Then all images at the exhibition will be presented in an auction where the money will go to ”Save the Children” and the ”Foundation for the Comprehensive Treatment of Children Neurological Diseases” (FLENI). The arrangement is supported by the Argentinian Culture Department and a row of embassies, among them the Norwegian Embassy.
The five Norwegian photographers are: Eli Ohren, Ragne Sigmond, Elin Høyland, Helene Fjell and Eli Reinholdtsen. They have as mentioned been awarded in 2010 and 2011, and invited by a professional jury to participate.
The venue is the Borges Cultural centre in Buenos Aires and is said to be a media event in Argentina and following from that a nice chapter on the five photographers’ CV’s. We congratulate them.”

January 2011: FOTOGRAFI Magazine, Norway – Issue 01-2011.

A double spread because I won their POTY award 2010.

FOTOGRAFI Magazine - POTY 2010 - Eli Reinholdtsen
“It was the first time Eli Reinholdtsen participated in the Photographer of the Year competition (2010) but she managed no less than to win it. With only one point above the runner-up actually, but fully deserved. There lives a lot of talent in Eli Reinholdtsen.
Eli has not photographed for very long. It was only three years ago she decided to get serious about her photography – alongside her job as change advisor for the Norwegian Armed Forces. She very early seeked the company of the other photographers in Oslo Camera Club, and she has learned a lot from her membership there.
She was also very active early to upload her photos on the web to get comments and critique from fellow photography students. It surely helped when starting up but now she has come so far that the inspiration is looked for elsewhere.
One of her inspirations has been workshops with the canadian photographer David duChemin, first in Venice and last autumn in Nepal. She praises duChemin and he praises her work.
Taken into view he short time Eli has been a photographer, duChemin keeps up his admiration for her work. ”An incredible eye” he says, and you understand that fast when you see her work. Eli has a superior eye, which is fuelled by an intense curiosity. She says herself that her background in computer science and logisitics have honed her attention to detail. And many of Elis photographs contains exactly the details and the surprise of a moment. Her photography is neither tense nor manic. The images are simple but at times wonderfully full of details.
We are printing here some of her images from Nepal, where duChemins workshop focussed especially on how a working photographer should establish contact with his or her subjects.
Eli has grown fast as a photographer but are not thinking about leaving her job to establish herself as a photographer. She has enough time for further development.”
