Torleif Lie is an award winning fine art photographer based in Stavanger, Norway.
Art is about communication, emotion, creativity and originality. Art is also about cognitive processes and intellectual work in relation to an underlying idea and an overall concept.
Creating photographic art is my greatest passion and something I feel compelled to do. My work reflects strong dramatic emotions and the beautiful, but with a fragility and an underlying message.
My desire is to create something unique, something timeless and something that inspires and creates emotions. Photographs that convey messages and ask questions.
My motivation and what compels me to create is a strong passion for photography as a medium of expression. It is in the creative process where I develop my artistic approach and it is the experiences on my journey that drives me.
I consider inspiration to be about who you are and what you have experienced, your inner images, impressions and experiences.
