Get to know the people who work in Barcode.
Meet Peter from restaurant Stock, the restaurant manager that always has a smile on his face.
Newspaper Dagens Næringsliv has this to say about Peter Mejlhus, restaurant manager at STOCK, in a review of the restaurant: "a wonderful, charming man". Of course we agree. Peter comes from Denmark, and moved to Norway in 1994. Since then he has worked in the restaurant business.
-The guests usually take a trip down memory lane when they hear that I am danish - a trip to Legoland, or a beer by the port of Skagen. It makes people relax, and start smiling. I like mye job, enjoy talking to people and I am always in a good mood. When people are happy, I feel even better! And, knock on wood, people are just that when they are here at Stock.
Meet Helene Gulaker Hansen. She is the owner and manager of Shoot Gallery. Her passion in life is her job. Photography has been one of her interests since she was a child, when her father came home from job travels in Tokyo with new cameras in his trunk. Her father's job for Canon made Helene fascinated with photography, a fascination that just developed with age.
After an education in economy she started working in the advertising industry.
-I was drawn to the creative and visual. I would sit next to the art directors at work. Eventually I caved in, and applied to photography and design at St. Martin's in London when I was 29.
After she finished her degree, she worked with advertising, moving towards photography and art. She realized art photography was almost non existent as a field in Norway. That is how Shoot Gallery came to be. Two years after starting out, she moved to Barcode.
-10.000 people work here. The location, potential and being part of the Barcode environment made me move my gallery here.
Shoot Gallery har huset utstillinger for blant andre Paolo Roversi, Jo Bentdal, Dag Alveng, Sølve Sundsbø, Anja Niemi og Stig Weston (avbildet).
