Haslnoy trilogy Portraits
This photographic project began during a residency in Halsnoy, an island in Norway.
Moving through landscapes lit by a ever changing sky, Nature, itself, catches hold of me in a forest that opens like a window unto the sea. Not a sea that sparkles in the sunlight, but rather one stretching into the fog, smothering the islands like ghosts.
I wander through the day. I contemplate this nature. I breathe it. I cup fleeting emotions.
I choose trees as my protagonists and as my closest companions.
I hover between the breath of the dense, humid forest and the whisper of the waves crashing gently on rocky beaches.
I photograph branches like exceptional beings. I study them, each of their different postures conjures yet another personality.
