The Smell of Fire

The Smell of Fire

By Eivind H. Natvig Last night I spoke with my wife on the phone and she mentioned the smell of fire. A building next to where she was burned down a few days prior and she could not find peace of mind. Searching electrical outlets for short circuits and going through the place several times...
The chase for that special first frame

The chase for that special first frame

New camera. Nothing to it, however, a thought came to mind. First exposure could be something special. Out of the ordinary. Not just another push of the button. A camera is a vessel for light. Through the glass, sensors or film we use, an unbelievable amount of lights pass. Some of it registers and is...

ELIN BERGE ILLUSTRATES NEW BOOK

When the brilliant comedians/actors/authors Sven Björklund and Olof Wretling from the humor collective Klungan (and national radio show “Mammas nya kille” and TV show “Ingen bor i skogen”) contacted me for an assignment I immediately said yes. Everything they do is genius. They had this idea that they would travel around the large and beautiful...

You Are Here Now by Eivind H. Natvig

In 2007 I began shooting images of Norway, not assignments or images with commercial value. Not even images with a distinct purpose, but a visual relief. Photography made from a true joy in discovery of Home; a country I had barely visited.

Photo by Chris Maluszynski/Moment The bright summer is long gone and now we are mentally preparing for the long and dark winter. – A perfect time to nurture the memories of our common summer project Scandinavian Moments.

The desert in Denmark

Mild color – gentle person?

Mild color – gentle person?

“I think others interpret you as a little more gentle if you’re a blonde. It’s a mild color. Dark hair is harsh.”

Pilot glasses and the recollection of time

I met Annikken and Laila at the same day in different parts of Oslo. At that point I never thought that the pictures would have anything in common. At least not until I put them together. Suddenly they started speaking to each other. It was as if the pilot glasses, those very material things, told...
A new norwegian experience

A new norwegian experience

I recently attended my first norwegian wedding. Hanne and Paul had a beautiful wedding in Oslo with the wedding party at the fantastic VIlla Eckbo outside the city. In Scandinavia most people want to arrange their weddings in the summer to use the long day and bright night can be fully used for the most...
Motor culture

Motor culture

I often end up in documenting motor culture and animals. I'm not interested in any of the two subjects significantly. On my visit to the north I shot both "folkrace" and snow scooter driving on the water. Why ? I don't know…

Going through my archive…

I have received my negatives from my trip but have had no chance to scan them, so I will continue to show pictures taken digitally for getting the exposure right.

They met at 09.42 and have spent the day together in Arvika, until Victoria leaves with the train at 21.59 the same day. They will meet again in one week.
Blond - but no blonde

Blond – but no blonde

“I’m not a blonde! To me it’s diminishing to be called that. I’m thinking of boobs and girls who do surgery and stuff. I had dark hair for a long time, but then I grew tired of looking bald every sixth week or so, when the fair hair started to grow out"
Sune Jonsson was a great photographer

Sune Jonsson was a great photographer

Most of his pictures was taking where he was raised, in the Norrbottens region the very north of Sweden. His pictures are now a very important factor in understanding how people lived during the northern swedish peasant society.

I met an old friend in a sort-of-new tuxedo. Martin is using this formal evening wear as a motivator for loosing weight and getting in shape after his heart attacks.
The sorry brunettes

The sorry brunettes

When I was young I had long blonde hair down to my waist. Yeah, I was pretty. I just had to move my hips a little to get help with all kinds of things. I felt sorry for the brunettes! It was the 70’s, you know, they had a hell trying to pretend to be...
