Søren Rønholt. Photographer and artist.
What attracts you to Nordic landscapes?
As an art photographer, I am very attracted to the Nordic landscapes and how to interpret them in my pictures. I keep returning to the fascinating forms of the massive rock formations and to the muted tones of the sea.
What makes them different to elsewhere in the world?
It is a question that I investigate with my camera. I do not wish to answer it unambiguously. I hope that my pictures do something for the viewer, to reflect on the importance of the landscape and the natural foundations that exist everywhere.
As a photographer, how does the light differ?
The light changes a lot between seasons and there are many dark hours. There is often a lot of moisture in the air, which makes the light special. Cloudy and drizzly skies create beautiful visual art.
How do you feel when you are in remote Nordic nature?
The moods and emotions that the landscapes evoke in me are those I wish to translate into my pictures. It is a search for resonance, of a relationship and interaction between the mind and the landscape.
