From the photo series House That Was Home, by Oyvind Hjelmen
I first encountered the photography of Oyvind Hjelmen when we met this past summer at the Rhubarb-Rhubarb photography festival in Birmingham UK. His square format black-and-white imagery — and his quiet yet articulate manner — immediately impressed me. We met again in Paris during the Month of Photography in November, when he presented a new body of work-in-progress, which was even more impressive.
His web site, www.oyvindhjelmen.com, sets a standard for how well a photographer's work can be presented online. The site is clean, spare, simple to navigate. It reflects the quiet nature of the photographer himself and lets the photographs speak for themselves. He presents only four portfolios, each concise, lyrical and captivating. Enjoy!
