Christian Houge Oslo, Norway

This "up close" series of portraits, made in the wild with packs of wolves, explores man's relation to the wolf and ultimately to himself.

Christian Houge guides us into a mystery between the ritualized shapes of the traditional and withdrawn Zen garden in Kyoto and the equally ritualized spaces of futuristic, urban Tokyo.
Christian Houge makes large-format panoramic photographs to capture the stark beauty and melancholy of a remote coal mining town in the far north of Russia and some high-tech outposts in the Arctic.
About Christian Houge

Fine art photographer exploring the relation between nature and culture from many different angles. Mans condition plays an important part in this. My images are shown in museums and galleries in my native country and internationally. My editions are very low and the images are collected both privately and in institutions. I also work by commission and give talks.
