The enigmatic and poetic second volume of Øyvind Hjelmen’s trilogy with an essay by Lars Saabye Christensen.

Øyvind Hjelmen welcomes viewers into his richly poetic and mysterious photographic world. The lyrically sequenced and meticulously printed duotone plates presented in this volume are characterized by deep shadows, bursts of penetrating light, and the gauzy aesthetics often associated with analog photographs made using plastic or other low-tech cameras. His enigmatic photographs maneuver slowly below the surface. It is on this subliminal level that the personal becomes universal and alludes to the human experiences of memory, fear, loss, sexuality, hope, nightmares, and doubt.
