Mette Tronvoll, "Sonja #1, Verdens Ende", 2014.

Royal portraits are one of the oldest genres in art.

In the summer of 2013, the internationally acclaimed Norwegian art photographer Mette Tronvoll was granted a unique photo session with H.M. Queen Sonja. The result of their encounter is a series of photographs portraying the queen in informal mood against the setting of the rocky coastline at Verdens Ende.
