| The meditative tranquility of the Norwegian landscape is tangible in these extraordinary photos
Stuart Franklin (*1956 in London), a member of Magnum Photos and a geographer, travels around the world as a photojournalist, capturing historical events—from the massacre at Tiananmen Square to the Intifada—on film. But a trip to the region of Møre og Romsdal on Norway’s west coast prompted him to pause: Franklin bought a cottage by a lake on the island of Otrøya, spending a great deal of time there over the next two and a half years. Narcissus documents his experience in this remote place, which led to a deeper understanding and sensitivity for the abundance around him in an environment that at first seemed barren. These very tranquil, contemplative, and introverted landscape photographs time and again seek references to human beings—a path, a chopping block in a far corner of the property, the reflection of the silhouette of a mountain in a lake that seems to melt into a human portrait. An urbanite encounters a small, special piece of nature and sees his own reflection in it.British photographer STUART FRANKLIN (*1956, London), a member of Magnum Photos, received the World Press Photo Award in 1989 and worked on many stories for National Geographic. He also holds a doctorate degree in geography which continuously impacts his work. His photography is concerned with landscape and ecology, exploring different concepts of landscape photography and the associations the term evokes.
