What is special about the Nordic landscape? How is it employed by today’s photographers? ARKEN’s summer exhibition explores these questions by uniting landscape photographers from the Nordic countries.

A mere ten years ago, very few photographers in Scandinavia employed the landscape as subject matter. This has changed dramatically in recent years when an increasing number of photographers in different ways approach and utilise the landscape. The exhibition shows how the landscape can both appear as a reflection of a frame of mind and as a concrete registration of a place.
