Space Travels Through Norway by Ole Marius Joergensen

Ole Marius Joergensen is a fine art photographer with a background in film based in Asker. He combines humor and a Norwegian strain of surrealism in his work and finds his inspiration in the inner and outer landscapes of his countrymen.He likes to shoot in the sparsely populated areas of the Northern regions. Many of his iconic images reflect the dreams and mysteries of his countrymen and raise questions of identity.

It all started last summer when I got some time off and wanted to discover my own backyard (Norway). So I thought a spacesuit was a great and strong symbol of the discovery I was about to do with my friend and car. There are no deeper thoughts behind this series. It’s all about prettiness. The astronaut’s poses are partly inspired by tourism: I love how tourists stand and need to take photos in the weirdest places and very often risking their own life for the image... which we also did.
