Photographic Interpretations of Norway's Trolltunga

Photographic Interpretations of Norway's Trolltunga

Perusing 500px, I was taken by an amazing photo shot by Till Hanten at the famous Trolltunga, one of the most spectacular scenic cliffs in Norway. I've never been myself but upon further photo snooping, I must go. Check out Hanten's photo among other stupendous individual interpretations of this natural wonder of a spot. I love seeing how seasonal weather, subject and lens setting can totally change the mood of each shot. "Trolltunga is a piece of rock that stands horizontally out of the mountain above Skjeggedal in Odda, Norway. The name translated to English is The Troll's tongue." - Wikipedia The Troll's Tongue by Till HantenOn the edge by Olav EikelandTrolltunga Norway by Bram LaebensWhere am I going? by Swen (Dzoncy) strOOpTrolltunga by Till HantenTrolltunga. by Svetlana ShupenkoTrolltunga sunset by Dag Endre OpedalTrolltunga by Robin ŠevčíkDusk at Trolltunga by Victor GanTrolltunga by Jarle L.

Amazing Paper-Artwork by Karen Bit Vejles

Karen Bit Vejles form of expression, psaligraphy, literally means the art of drawing or painting with scissors. Her magical cuttings in the travelling exhibition Scissors for a Brush, are rooted in a tradition that has known a long journey through history. But she has created a personal style and technique that are entirely her own. For more than 35 years she has been absorbed, fascinated, and deeply committed to this art form that developed from small, simple snowflakes to unusually large and highly complex image cuttings. She is one of very few in Europe who can cut at such an advanced technical and artistic level. There is a great degree of humour in Karen Bit Vejle’s world of imagery; humour and the ability to identify joy in small things. Just as often, though, she confronts deep seriousness and themes intended to invoke involvement and reflection. Her works are captivating surprise packages. By meeting Karen Bit Vejle’s images of air and paper we can find ourselves both surprised and inspired!

Both when it comes to creation and experience of the work of art. Contrary to almost everything else in the world today, psaligraphy is a slow art. It takes time to master, plan and perform it. “My heart and soul are at peace when I have the scissors in hand and the paper dances between the blades. If my scissors can manage to make you stop and wonder for just one instant, I will be happy” – Psaligraph Karen Bit Vejle (born 1958) Project - H.C. Andersen Misc
