PERSONAL STATEMENT

My abstract BRUDD photographies of antropocene manmade landscape reveal amazing 300 million years old larvikite stone formations found deep in Norwegian quarries in mining districts of Vestfold. The BRUDD photo series brings history a fresh contemporary expression and provides the audience with a new consciousness about art and cultural history. These images are unique glimpses from mankind's evolution - impossible to reproduce - forever gone.
