“Come, for all is now ready.”  When a priest in the Church of Norway utters this phrase, it signals that the congregation can come forward to receive Communion. And they come. Rosland is a pastor to those who mourn and those who rejoice; he is there at the beginning and end of life and participates in all that befalls the community. It is this ‘drama of life’ that the photographer Eivind H. Natvig has witnessed. It provides motifs for a distinctive visual expression that exists somewhere between photojournalism and low-voiced poetry. Ordinary life, as it has been lived for generations, is Natvig’s focus. As he himself says: “The normal is more than enough for me”.

“Come, for now all is ready” by Eivind H. Natvig will be on display at Kulturbadet Galleri in Sandnessjøen, Norway,  from February 4th to March 5th 2017. Eivind H. Natvig plakat from February 4th to March 5th.
