EXPERIMENTAL CRAFTSMANSHIP

Sølve Sundsbø’s aspiration has always been to explore all aspects of photography. His otherworldly and cleverly manipulated photography has a recognizable signature which is equally intriguing as it is experimental. 

“It is irrelevant whether it is fashion or art, the important question is whether it is interesting or not.”

Using a wide range of approaches, such as 3D-scanning or hand-painted retouching in his work, the experimental photographer and filmmaker has made a name for himself as one of fashion’s great image-makers. Although his images may seem digitally manipulated, they are mostly a result of traditional techniques. He is a regular contributor to publications such as Love Magazine, i-D, Dazed & Confused and Vogue Italia. His client list includes all major fashion brands imaginable and his works have been featured in several gallery exhibitions.

I am not particularly excited about visual art today. I think it is too driven by a world of curators who are more concerned about how they appear than the art itself.”

Sundsbø pushes the boundaries of photography with his uncompromising vision, which has won him several international awards.
