100 Norwegian Photographers
Curated and edited by the artist Ina Otzko, 100 Norwegian Photographers is a magnificent volume of photos from today’s Norwegian photography scene.
Published by Hatje Cantz Verlag
Otzko gives one hundred contemporary photographers from her country the space to show their best images, including renowned figures such as Dag Alveng, Jonas Bendiksen, Knut Bry, Morten Krogvold, Annemor Larsen, Crispin Gurholt and Mikkel McAlinden. With several double pages for each photographer, the book is a vivid archive of Norwegian photography, uniting the most diverse genres, from landscapes to portraits, experimental photography to snapshots. It provides an extensive overview of the mysterious country in the north, the land of glaciers and fjords, showing it in brilliant facets—witty, absurd, poetic, political, special.
