#photography Maren Elize Klemp -the fog that comes creeping
I am a fine art photographer living and working in Oslo, Norway. I
studied fine art photography under professor Robert Meyer at Robert
Meyer Kunsthøgskole in Oslo, and I have many years of experience in
the field of fine art photography. My current interests in photography
encompasses self portraiture, black and white photography in general
and the use of vintage photographic equipment that infuses my images
with a timeless dimension. I mostly use myself and my children as
models, which makes my photography honest and true.
I have had several exhibitions in Oslo, Norway and I am the co-author
of the book “Between Intervals” together with the American
photographer and professor dr. José Escobar.
My goal is to raise awareness of mental health through my work. I
consider my photography to be a plunge into the darker sides of the
human mind, and many of my images are visual representations of
conditions associated with mental illness. The pictures tell about
those who are gripped by darkness, isolation and sadness, and about
relationships with close family . They tell about the lack of
belonging, to live in a separate world that few or no others can enter
or understand. It’s about the fog that comes creeping , which
overpowers and paralyzes, the invisible disease.
