Jazz up your walls and bring life to your space

What happens when an eleven-year-old boy sneaks for the first time into the darkroom of film development? He falls severely under the spell of this great magical world and since then his fate has been sealed with pictures of creativity.

I’m a Norwegian visual artist, born in 1971 in Svolvaer, Lofoten Islands, Norway. My photo journey started at the age of 11 when my father introduced me to the great magic of film development and post-production in his low budget darkroom. Even if the old analogue darkroom is replaced by modern, digital tools like Photoshop and Lightroom, my vision and creative ideas are the same.

Producing a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver is what my artwork focuses on. Influenced by renowned artists like Ansel Adams and Rene Magritte, I create surreal and fine digital artwork.

With a conceptual approach, I try to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way to produce a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence.

My work has been displayed around the world through exhibitions like the SummerExpo Rome in Italy, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Musee Du Louvre, Paris, Monaco Urban Expo, Sold to CBS for use in Stephen King Series and published in books like “Best of Photography 2014” and “Best of Photography 2015”.

My work has also been put on display at a number of hotels like 

  • Millennium Broadway, New York
  • Hyatt Regency Chicago
  • Hotel Pullman Tour Eiffel, Paris
  • Chateau de Candie, Chambéry
  • Renaissance Tampa Intl Plaza
  • Hyatt Centric Times Square, New York
  • The urban, San Francisco
  • Pullman Dubai, Dubai
