About Moments Reflected

In his second monograph, Norwegian photographer Øyvind Hjelmen welcomes viewers into his richly poetic and mysterious photographic world: Moments Reflected. Expanding on his portfolio of the same title by including works not previously published or exhibited, the lyrically sequenced and meticulously printed duotone plates presented in this volume are characterized by deep shadows, bursts of penetrating light, and the gauzy aesthetics often associated with analog photographs made using plastic or other low-tech cameras. Yet beyond Hjelmen’s command of craft and masterfully honed aesthetics, his enigmatic photographs maneuver slowly below the surface. It is on this subliminal level that the personal becomes universal and alludes to the human experiences of memory, fear, loss, sexuality, hope, nightmares, and doubt.
