I was introduced the wonderful photographs of Oyvind Hjelman by the Lens Culture Blog last year. Recently Lens Culture also posted info on a new show of Hjelman’s work in Paris. I would love to go and see the actual prints of this work as so far I have only seen the work online. If you are lucky enough to be in Paris for this I urge you to pay a visit.
I am particularly fond of the photographs from ‘The House That Was Home’, it shows a careful observation that verges on reverence, to all the marks and elements of an intimate history present in a personal space. It brings to mind the writing of Gaston Bachelard’s ‘Poetics of Space’
