Rome by Morten Krogvold

Piazza Navona

Yesterday my husband and I went across the lake, to  Hamar, to see Morten Krogvold's photographs from Rome. 
I saw the photos several times while in Rome this fall, and now  it felt like I was meeting old friends!  What a change of scenery for these pictures... In Rome they were in a palace, with high ceilings, marble and decorations all over, and here they were hung on the wall of an old factory, turned into art gallery.  
But, it really worked!  The white-washed walls and the beautiful lighting made a wonderful backdrop for these gorgeous photographs.  If you have the possibility, go and see them!  They will be on display for two months.

Morten and Tarand Krogvold have been working a very long time with these photographs, who also are part of a book project on Rome, together with Thomas Thiis-Evensen.  See here.
