Photo book with 130 stills from Return trip to STAVANGER – film project consisting of footage of the Tau ferry, as seen from narrow alleys and through the windows of private homes near the harbours of Stavanger.

The book is in Norwegian and has an artistic introduction by Helga Nyman, an essay by Even Smith Wergeland, as well as a short text on maritime history from Anne Tove Austbø and an afterword by Bergjord himself. The title of the book, «HARDANGER STAVANGER» is from the ship side of one of the ferries in the now closed Stavanger – Tau connection.

The film recordings are made as static compositions with camera on a tripod. Two and two pictures from film clips are presented in seperate spreads in the book, so that one sees the same picture on the right and left side, but with the ferry in different places in the frame when one flips through the book.
