Romantic, atmospheric photographs of landscapes and nature from the solitude of Norway

Ernst Schwitters (1918–1996), Norway’s most well-known postwar photographer, began his work with color film in 1943. Within two decades, he created more than ten thousand slides, which are today part of the collection at the Kurt and Ernst Schwitters Foundation in Hannover. This volume presents a characteristic selection of the best landscape photos taken in Norway and England. They demonstrate how the artist captured the moods of nature by means of varying the chromatic dominance in his images. His eye for composition and structure, which he developed through his work in black and white, is blended with a rational use of color. Along with an introductory essay about the photographer, the book describes how the images were digitally restored, making it possible to show some of the damaged slides for the first time since they were made.
