Disappearing Architecture

Structures in Norway

Johannes Nadeno







I have been working on the project »Structures in Norway« during my one-year scholarship exchange period at the art academy in Bergen (KHIB), Norway.
It is a photographic attempt on the country Norway, which is considered to be one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe.
In my work I am dealing with the phenomena of settlement. In the pictures of places and landscapes one can find references to social structures and lifestyles - thus characteristics of urban and rural structures are emphasized.
People rarely appear in my pictures, rather traces of civilization enable the viewer to draw conclusions from the living conditions of the local inhabitants.
I am currently preparing a book of my work »Structures in Norway«. The pictures published here are a small selection of it.
