Honerud’s work is in the tradition of a journalistic. During the years 2018-2020, Honerud carried out a major work associated with the refugee camp Moria Camp, on the island of Lesvos in Greece, where she joined people doing sports through the organization Yoga and Sports with Refugees (YSR).
Honerud works closely with the people she photographs – over weeks, months and sometimes years – and she considers it necessary to try and achieve what she believes is most necessary: to convey the experience and reality of the person being photographed. Honerud refers to Jon Berger’s essay Uses of Photography (1978) regarding her approach to this philosophy:
«For the photographer this means thinking of her or himself not so much as a reporter to the rest of the world but rather, as a recorder for those involved in the events photographed. The distinction is crucial.”
