The long-awaited official a-ha photo book by Norwegian photographer Stian Andersen will be released in September. The book will include photos from the years 1994-2010.
Stian has had a unique, long-term perspective on the band, and his photos document a part of a-ha’s story that has rarely been seen. According to the Press web site, “From 1994 until the farewell tour in 2010, [Stian] has been closer to the band and the guys than anyone before him, while traveling in cars, in hotels, at rehearsal, backstage and – as the only one ever – even in the studio, where he photographed Morten Harket recording the vocals to the Foot of the Mountain.”
Fans worldwide will be able to pre-order the book from Press from 10:00am on July 2 until September 1. The pre-order book price is NOK 524. You can choose whether to pick up the book in Oslo, or have it shipped to your home (shipping and handling charges will apply).
The books will be available for pick up at Sentrum Scene from Septmber 14 for those who can collect it in Oslo that weekend. Note that you do not have to attend the a-ha anniversary events or Morten’s concert in order to collect your pre-order book; it will be available at the Sentrum Scene entrance for you to collect.
The book will only be available in a limited quantity, and it is possible it may sell out during the pre-sale or very soon thereafter; be sure to order your copy as early as possible!
The general public sale for the photo book will begin on September 15, and the price will be NOK 600. During the general sale, the book will be available online, in some Norwegian book shops and at Sentrum Scene – depending upon availability.
As we posted in March, Stian Andersen will be at the a-ha convention on Saturday, September 15 for a book signing. We will post more information about this in late August, when the full convention schedule is published.
Also, in connection with the book release, there will be a photo exhibition at Stolper and Friends gallery in Oslo. We do not have confirmed dates for the exhibition yet, we will share the information as soon as it is available.
