A strong desire to capture the beauty of Norway for all the world to see transformed into a fascinating photo series with an intriguing concept at its core. Ole Marius Joergensen is a fine art photographer whose work features a hint of surrealism and strong narrative elements. He decided to add a creative twist to the landscape photographs by incorporating a human character: a man in a space suit. Thus, the images metamorphosed from merely stunning examples of the breathtaking Norwegian landscape into conceptual work. “Soon, it became obvious that the space suit was a symbol for discovering Norway; for venturing into the unknown and for charting new creative territory”, says the photographer.

Joergensen and his friend Kristian Valen Senstad embarked on a road trip through the country, starting from Oslo, driving west to Bergen, and stopping at picturesque fjords before heading through the mountains back to the capital. The astronaut brings a dream-like atmosphere to the photos, which is enhanced by the striking natural features found along the way, but also by the lighting that seems to envelop the scenes in a bright and cool haze. The man and the land are closely linked; the explorer is also an observer, but in this series he is not the main character, Norway is. Surreal and simply gorgeous, the photographs achieve the artist’s goal of presenting the beauty of his country through creative images that invite the viewer into a captivating world.
