About the Photographer

Orsolya Haarberg

"The greatness of landscapes have always been captivating me. Open scenes, where the Earth meets the sky on the horizon, are places where I love to be, searching for topics to photograph.

Not necessarily to represent the characteristic scenes of a landscape in my images, but to find the hidden secrets of a land. To reveal a level of harmony within the chaos. To manage to create images that touch a chord in me, discover subjects that have the potential for associations and interpretations to me and the observer.

As a nature photographer , I am "omnivorous"; from photographing great landscapes and animals, to the tiniest details that remain unnoticed for most of us. I seek to capture attractive combinations of colours, clear and simple compositions, and I like to achieve a graphic effect on my photographs. I do so also when I work with animals. With a few exceptions, it is not the behaviour of a bird or mammal that I want to document, but the lines and colours becoming distinct in the landscape.

Abstract topics also give me great joy and challenge to create something of my own. Doing so, the playful and art-loving part of me awakes, and the results are more personal images without the constraint of representation.

I am happiest by the sea, where I can witness the work of waves as they hit the rocks and wash the beaches rhythmically. Time passes unnoticeably, while searching for the right scene or waiting for the perfect light. Enjoying such moments is one way to life’s flow; when you have your entire focus on the one thing you do, forgetting about all thoughts that may distract you otherwise.

For me, this is the way I do most things. Being lost in the things I do is the best recipe for a happy life."

Far out at sea, Sanna is a fairy-tale kingdom of islands, skerries and mountains. A place where the midnight sun is visible for six weeks, its tidal pools, caves and grottoes create a magical atmosphere. This enchanted land is the setting for tales of the strange beings and supernatural forces of Norwegian lore.
