London: MACK, 2012.
Torbjørn Rødland’s photography has been described as “blatantly retarded in a consciously agile way.” Despite the clean immediacy of his style that consciously resembles commercial photography, his work can be elusive in ways that are fascinating and confounding. His most beguiling pictures, like a well-crafted pop song with an insidious hook, grab you and don’t let go, creating images that somehow lay claim to strangeness and normalcy at the same time. It’s their matter-of-fact quality that allows a level of acceptance to slip almost unnoticed through the side door. Item #12304
