Still here, lingering
Photoremix is an ongoing project were photographers are invited by us to have their remixed. «Still here, lingering» is made in collaboration with photographer Damian Heinisch. Mountains and trolls are archetypes deeply burrowed in the Norwegian consciousness. As a consequence, the subject is exhausted commercially, and especially in the marketing of Norway as a tourist destination. Packaged in dumb slogans and sold in souvernir shops the trolls now feel tired and unfashionable. But as everyone who have walked in the mountains a summernight knows; they are still here, lingering.
The works were exhibited in Oslo in November 2010. See pics from the opening night here. The project also won the Adobe Breakthrough Photography Award at the PDN Photo Annual 2011, and was featured in the Shift Calendar 2010
