Observation and time
Photography will always have a documentary edge, although its relation to reality will be just as foreseeably rugged. The works of the four artists covered in this issue, all relate to the image-reality connection, and its documentary interest.
Eivind Natvig in his essay A Certain Level of Discomfort confronts his past as news photographer. Although a strong believer in documentary, he was worn out by the speed, and the speed of forgetfulness. Una Line Ree Hunderi names her work visual anthropology, as seen in her project The Ideal State. This implies slowness and attendance to the silence and the time between, which transcends to her work. 17000 islands, by filmmakers Thomas Østbye and Edwin, explore what happens when filmmakers let go of their power to edit. The online project involves unlimited editors coming up with ever new perspectives, using the same film material. Finally, Line Bøhmer Løkken, interviewed by Trine Stephensen, emphasises the necessity to spend time, and expands: “This stands in strong contradiction to what, for the most part, is expected from us, both in the art world and in daily life. (…) The passing of time is invisible, but I still think that one can sense it somehow.”
