recently discovered a couple norwegian photographers, and i'll start with lars botten.
"Born in Trondheim, Norway in 1964. Influenced by the light and space of a mid Norwegian mountain village where he grew up, he arrived in Paris in the early 90-ties. His work is mainly concentrated around taking pictures of people with an approach and interest in human psychology and in the way emotions transforms into pictures. He has worked for a wide range of magazines." (via link)
