About the Norwegian photographer, Torbjörn RODLAND (b.1970 in Stavanger)

Torbjörn RODLAND makes photographic images that pointedly address their viewers, evoking a wide range of emotional and intellectual states. He also emphasizes the formal attributes of his photographs, pushing the medium toward modes of visual expression more commonly associated with painting, and forging links between 20th century art photography and 21st century approaches to image-making common to advertising and social media. His photographs and experimental videos have been exhibited extensively since the 1990s. Torbjörn RODLAND has published a series of photo book titles since 2008.
