Fiery Red Nordic Landscapes by Øystein Aspelund

aeon, nordic photography, red ice

Norwegian photographer Øystein Aspelund has done an exceptional job capturing the beauty of his region, through the use of projected light, smoke and fire he illuminates warmly these ice-cold landscapes. His temporary installations are a study of colors and shapes as well as the interaction humans have with natural environments—Aspelund explains: “Aiming to create a symbiosis with the installations and its surroundings, while at the same time reflecting on the so-called anthropocene epoch we live in today.” In addition to the series “ÆON” shown here, take a look at “Hibernation” (which explores the theme of subconsciousness—reality vs fiction), and “Getting Lost II” (about escape and disappearance).
