This past May, during the Nordic Light International Festival of Photography in Kristiansund, we had the pleasure of having American photographer Todd Hido as our guest.

Todd Hido is best known for his focusing on subjects including houses at night, landscapes, and portraiture. Todd’s works can be found in collections of some of the world’s most prestigious art institutions.

During his stay in Kristiansund, he took the opportunity to photograph the Norwegian countryside while on a brief road trip together with Marina Luz! One of them you can see above. We asked Todd to tell us more about the photo: 

“I was blown away by the Norwegian night. I was there during a time of year that it was only dark for a short time in the evening. That was great for making dusk and dawn night shots. One evening I happened upon this beautiful lake in the very early morning hours, where it was about as calm as I had seen any place. A dense fog, no people, and no cars, just that light illuminating something that had been obscured by the rolling fog."
