Many years ago I learned about a project, carried out by four photographers (or artists, not sure how they would have categorized themselves, if at all). They went out in an attempt to redefine the *norwegian landscape photograph which, at the time, was suffocating in waterfalls and other epic–ness. A brief disclaimer; the photograph above is mine and apart from being influenced by the work of the four photographers, as well as others who came […]
That is, Streetrepeat as in here, on Instagram.

Don’t care much for the advertising aspect but apart from that I rather enjoy the footage. Something about the photographer just,.. appeals to me. Dworzak at Magnum.
