elsewhere by Øyvind Hjelmen

Øyvind won the 2010 Gold award, in GULLSNITT, the largest photo competition in Norwegian.

About Elsewhere:

Elsewhere is a pastiche of moments, layered and counter balanced, from our shared contemporary existence. The images frame our modern sensibilities with a sense of almost recalled familiarity yet without specificity of time or space. Intimate, lyrical gelatine prints evoke timeless human dramas -- heart-stopping beauty, sadness shrouded in fog, warmth of a stranger's smile, loneliness of an unknown place ? welcoming viewers to their own sense of connectedness by these communal memories. An ongoing project, Elsewhere, has many chapters, plot lines, and unexpected narrative twists while moving the viewer forward


Øyvind is teaching a workshop for NORDphotography called "TALKING GREAT PICTURES", in OSlo 22-24 Oktober, you can read all about it on here: or on NORDphotography's webpage:
