for beauty and harmony
Since my voice is a bit froggy as I clear up some spring time congestion, and I’m behind on my weekly delivery, I thought I would share some of the medium format film exposures I made when I arrived to Norway seven-years ago. These haven’t been hidden but they have not been exhibited in print form yet. There are several Places on my website under the Portfolios section.
I learned my interest in transforming the internal landscape through navigating the mountains is called Landscape Psychology. Usually people will say, oh it’s just another landscape photograph, but I think Harriet Sundström, put a great deal of time and thought into selecting specific subjects as so many artists do. The psychology of landscape is actually a an established area of of perceptual research, and key to the way places make people hypothesis I work with in my other projects including dissolving culturally constructed dichotomies relative to the way we think of the world as outside. If you’re looking for more to read, this paper (click the text) partly informed the Afjordance and Solfége Souche videos.
Moreover beautiful landscapes are said to lessen symptoms of depression, so I hope allowing these forms to come into your eyes allows you to feel beauty, harmony, and hope in the week ahead.
