K. Linnea Backe is a photographer now based in Oslo, Norway. She lived in NYC for a couple of years, but had to return toNorway due to the pandemic. She is a former musician and likes to bring elements of movement similar to those of music into her photography.
General artist statement:
As a former musician, the study of tonality and form is important to me, as is the flow of the melodic line. Music is a way of saying without really saying, a medium to hide oneself to reveal oneself. It gives immense freedom but the freedom is contained, pared-down, as it is in photography. In photography, singular objects can be the means for looking without telling, for asking questions without giving answers. The examination of these simple objects in time, as they are touched by light, gives the viewer the power to see in darkness.
