Shades of malancholy (2013/2012)

These photos are taken of my family's summer house locaded next to the Lyngørfjord in Aust-Agder county, Norway. The photographs were taken over three summers to include variation in weather which might influence the expression and apperance of the pictures. The color is removed to enhance the persvading tone of a quiet, relaxed, and slightly melancholic mood. This atmosphere is expressed by shooting the photos from outside the cabin and through the windows, which gives the viewer an unexpected enterance into the privacy of a family at vacation. Many of the reflections of trees and the surroundings is merged with the interior of the summer house. This technique is exaggerated almost to the point that the division between the inside of the summer house and the outside becomes uclear, and the question of what is private and public is blurred.
