The exibition “Portraits, realistic absurdities” by photographer Moment Agency photographer Oddleiv Apneseth was opened at Voss, Banksmidja, on the 25th of October  2012.

The show consist of large format panoramic portraits and group-portraits. Most taken in Norway and Sweden 2011/12. They are heavily staged, but also true to the realities of the old photographic tradition of portraying individuals and larger scenes, such as group-portraits. Nevertheless, most of the pictures have disturbing elements, dimensions and narrative pieces that sometimes do not belong together; staged for the visual purpose.
