// vestlandet 


a continuous cycle about the weather and nature in western norway.

i started working on this cycle in 2015 already, but the first photos were taken with a digital full-frame camera.
since i decided later to switch to a middle format film camera and change the direction of the work also, 
i started shooting everything from scratch again.

below are a few previews from both the digital 'predecessor' and the current version.

i’m also finding inspiration and a reasonable explanation for my beliefs in one of Josef Sudek’s quotes:

...it’s such a saddened landscape. i don’t like photographing happy

landscapes. because the happy ones are always happy in the same way and
always feel the same. but the sad ones have many variations. saddened and
less sad and even more sad.”
