Trespassing: Photos by Ole Brodersen
Conceptual photos in which human-made objects are placed in landscapes and their interactions with the natural elements recorded.
Forces of wind, currents and waves are harnessed and the unfoldings in these encounters are recorded; how nature composes and rearranges these objects. The process involves a large format camera and often long exposures. With this kind of a camera, there is no possibility to see exactly what fills the frame at the moment of exposure. Once the shot has been set up, there is little control over the final image.
The choice of materials for these interventions is indicative. Using mostly found materials, like rope, old sail-cloth, and nails, which are joined by other, somewhat “lesser” materials like Styrofoam, LED-lights and rubber balloons. These fragments are tracing out a human presence, one that is systematically lacking in these series.
