Happiness Is Not In Your Shiny Car, Smartphone Or Social Network; It Is In Togetherness

Published on 20 March, 2014 at 9:00 pm By

Two Norwegian brothers, Harald and Mathias Ramen, lived a life of happiness – a feeling that might sound strange to most people of our times. No one would have known the heart-warming and morally enriching story of the two brothers had not photographer Elin Høyland stumbled across them. Harald and Mathias were aged 75- and 80-years-old, respectively, at the time when Elin met them. They lived their entire lives on the farm they grew up on, never married and shared almost every moment together till death took them apart. Here are pictures of the two from Elin’s series titled “The Brothers”.
