Gorgeous And Intriguing Series Of Photographs By Øystein Sture Aspelund Capturing Temporary Installations Of Smoke, Light & Fire, Set In Unspoilt Nordic Landscapes

The series “ÆON” is a collection of temporary installations of smoke, light & fire, set in unspoilt Nordic landscapes. Thematically, the series is examining our relationship with the landscape and natural habitat. It is focusing on how we, as humans, interact with our natural spaces and environments. Raising awareness and presence, the series is aiming to create a symbiosis with the installations and its surroundings, while at the same time reflecting on the so-called anthropocene epoch we live in today.

“I am a photographer based in Trondheim, Norway. I have always been interested in visual expressions. However, my photographical journey started in 2009. I like to explore themes and investigate ideas through series of images. My background from architecture affects my work, motivation and choices of topics. Thematically, I seek to have a kind of cultural presence in my photographs. I like to travel where my camera takes me, often to places people don’t know exist. I try to show the world in a different way than people usually see it.

One of my main themes of inspiration are places that have seen rapid changes. It may be borderlands where the civilization turns into the wild. Or reflections on the struggle between man and his environment. Often the results end up in a field between traditional documentary and art photography.

Some of my work involves investigations into the relationship between color and shapes, in a more minimalistic way. But beauty itself is not enough. A great picture also needs substance, a kind of deeper meaning, with possibilities to reach further levels of understanding, investigations and enlightenment,” said Øystein.
