Andersen, Morten


Since 1999, when I published my first book Fast City, the artist and photo book have been my main way of presenting my work. Since then I have made and published 22 books, most of them selfpublished. Besides being a piece of art in itself the book is a democratic, accessible and intimate object where the sum of the single images and the editing creates a larger whole that, like in a novel or a film, makes a story that can take you to a new place and bring you new experiences. Common for all my work and the motivation for photographing come from a curiosity and a desire to explore and investigate places and environments, either it is Oslo, Norwegian forests, my neighborhood, Oslos underground rock scene or international cities.
