Morten Andersen - at LE BAL, Paris

If you happen to be in Paris this Wednesday night, March 3,  you can head for Le Bal and enjoy the discussion between Morten Andersen and Rémi Coignet, critic and author of the blog Des livres et des photos.
Norwgian born, Morten is a prolific and idiosyncratic photographer who has made a decided mark with his always surprising books works.  He says this about himself: Since 1999, the photo book was the main way for exposure of my work. So far, I have published twelve books, mostly self-publishing. Not only the book is an art object in its own right, but it is also a democratic medium, accessible and intimate, where the sum of the images and layout work create a whole,  greater than the sum of its parts, which, as in a novel or a movie, composes a story that transports in new places and makes you live new experiences. In all these books, motivation photograph is born of a sense of curiosity, a desire to discover and explore places and environments, whether Oslo, Norwegian Forest, in my neighborhood of the underground rock scene in Oslo or cities around the world.
