nordic now! zooms in on five tendencies governing the production of photography in the Nordic countries today: private and autobiographical photography; hybrids between photography and other media; the return to analogue techniques; dream-like scenarios that merge reality and fantasy, as well as looking at the immense changes that the genre of documentary is undergoing, with its practitioners questioning and pushing the borders of how it is defined. The publication includes essays by leading critics and curators from Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. These are complemented by an interview with the legendary picture editor Kathy Ryan from the New York Times Magazine, who gives an outside view of Nordic contemporary photography, which she says combines “a spirited, nude, happy, paradise imagery with the intimate, close-to-home, metaphorical landscape.

Both Moment Agency and several of our members is presented in nordic now! At the Oslo launch on Wednesday 28. August there will be talks by Marie Sjøvold, Toft i Honerud and Eivind H. Natvig.
