Eyes as Big as Plates

 

 

Inspired by the romantics’ belief that folklore is the clearest reflection of the soul of a people, Eyes as Big as Plates started out as a play on characters and protagonists from Norwegian folklore. During a one month residency at the KINOKINO Centre for Art and Film in the South West of Norway, the Norwegian photographer Karoline Hjorth and Riittai Konen collaborated with sailors, farmers, professors, artisans, psychologists, teachers, parachuters and senior citizens.

The resulting images are all at once human, humorous and haunting – quite a combination.
