Tales from the shadowlab
« Since 1999, the photo book was the main way for exposure of my work. So far, I have published twelve books, mostly self-publishing. Not only the book is an art object in its own right, but it is also a democratic medium, accessible and intimate, where the sum of the images and layout work create a whole, greater than the sum of its parts, which, as in a novel or a movie, composes a story that transports in new places and makes you live new experiences. In all these books, motivation photograph is born of a sense of curiosity, a desire to discover and explore places and environments, whether Oslo, Norwegian Forest, in my neighborhood of the underground rock scene in Oslo or cities around the world. » M.Andersen
