About the series Gone Anne Helene Gjelstad says:
I love photographing people the most. People really intrigue me; who we are, how we dress, how we live and even more - our destiny. Eyes fascinate me, how the glimpse of truth and accumulated experience of life can shine through.

This is my meeting with some of the inhabitants in a nursing home in Mexico. For some days I was allowed to go around and take all the images I wanted. I have called my series GONE, because this is how I experienced these poor people: Gone from life and into a world we do not reach – gone into a world we don’t want to go, a world we wish to avoid.

It was a strong meeting with that world and some destinies far from home, the world normally unseen. Some destinies far away became close, they have touched me deeply, and they follow me further.

Anne Helene Gjelstad lives and works in Oslo area. Her passion is photographing people - portraits, fashion and documentary. She also does interior, products and lifestyle as well as fine art photography, landscapes and personal projects.

She aims to use the means of set and stage production to modulate communication - whether in exhibition projects, on stage, in real urban space or in the non-space entity of cyberspace.  She prefer to merge traditional photographic techniques, staged sets and digital methods, often combining multiple images or other media.

Interplay between form and content -

In 2007 Bech started to explore light modeling - light and dark contrasts in several layers to achieve an enhanced depth. She combines photography on aluminum with liquid plexi and painting techniques on strict / designed shapes [ I Am Nature ].
