Norwegian photographer Erlend Mikael Saeverud (1975) examines the streets  through intense blacks, whites and splashes of color, illustrating dramatic narratives that balance opposing forces like the past and present, dark and light, physical and psychic worlds, truth and fiction. 

 

Erlend Mikael Sæverud’s fine art photography consist of spontaneous street photographs where the light steers the wanderer towards an unknown destination. – I think solitude sometimes can be an important path, to get to know the depth of existence. I am very inspired by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung: “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

 

Erlends started his career as a musician and producer. 

In 2007 he had a car accident, and after a long period of recovery he discovered photography. 

Through the lense he felt like he was seeing the world for the first time and the Camera became å healing tool in his recovery. 

 

This was the start of Erlends journey as a photographer.
