"Inspired by Edvard Munch’s oft quoted words, Flowers Shall Grow presents a collection of seemingly innocent and playful images suffused with a sense of melancholy and imbued with a subtle and coded symbolism.
Bergmanesque figures, often stripped bare, are glimpsed deep within Norwegian forests, spied solitary beside dark waters or voyeuristically observed in sparse domestic interiors. Whatever the narrative components, the harsh Northern light of the fleeting Scandinavian sun is all pervasive. A collection of fictional fragments and stolen moments, reminiscent of stills from an unseen movie. Mise-en-scène, tinged with sadness and quietly exuding loneliness and longing, hinting at a deeper undercurrent of angst as the photographer explores timeless Scandinavian themes such as death, the cycle of life and symbiosis with nature."
