The Darkest of Winter's Light
The Darkest of Winter’s Light explores the internal human condition for people living in Sauda, a town 200 square miles in size, and on the Western edges of Norway. Positioned in the northern hemisphere, my birthplace experiences prolonged dark winters, evoking a sense of melancholy and the macabre. Aiming my camera at a familiar yet alien world, Uncle Per is featured centrally in my project. Having lived in the same house his entire life, my images seek to reveal a way of life for Norwegians as the seasonal light and darkness descends. It began with the search for what it means to be northern. And it ended up being the story of Uncle Per, that becomes my story and yours.
