Svart-Hvitt Metall Fotografi
The photos in this series are inspired by the dark yet tranquil atmosphere of early black metal albums by bands such as Satyricon, Emperor, Ulver, Darkthrone and Immortal. Some of the lyrics on these albums are really just descriptions of the majesty of vast winter landscapes, delivered in icy shrieks over blasting drums and raging guitars. The sheer saturation of instrumental noise somehow seems to shield off these grunted invocations of natural beauty, protecting them as it were. With these photos I have tried to penetrate through the noise and into the deep forests' embrace, to reach the tranquil core of the black metal genre.
