Ole Brodersen is a Norwegian art photographer, inspired by the forces of nature that is always present in a landscape.
Dedicating his work to unveil this presence by exploring encounters between manmade objects and untouched nature.
For 12 generations has Brodersen’s family been living in a bucolic village area on a car-free archipelago; the paradise of Lyngør. Growing up in the idyllic Southern Norway, with a sailor for a grandfather and a sail maker for a father, the wonders of the nature and the landscape surrounding us, have become prominent in Ole Brodersen’s work.
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” - Karl Lagerfeld
Ole Brodersen rowed to school and sailed from the age of 6. The journey was decided by waves, tide, wind and currents, and now these elements decide where his photographs will betaken.
“A large format camera is used and often with long exposures that allow me to capture the movements of the objects. I have no influence on the final exposure. I deploy my markers, start the chosen exposure and wait as it develops in front of me while nature takes control of the markers. The procedure enables nature to yield a figure of movement. An invisible force is captured into a visible sign.” - Ole Brodersen
