OLA RINDAL - DAG MADOKA MIYA
“Nothing is like a sleeping child.” – Ola Rindal
It’s impossible to look at this body of work featuring members of Ola Rindal’s family and not want to immediately transport yourself into their world, or feel as if you might have been magically transported there already, simply by looking in. A world where leaving is as beautiful and hopeful as arriving, a light on the path appears just before your next step, and you are always, always within 10 minutes of a warm nap.
His work here is a study in contradictions: intensely intimate yet protective of his subjects, warm and fuzzy even when you’re viewing a literal icicle. It urges you to be more inquisitive while keeping you at arm's length.
The book is divided into three publications - one for each family member of the author: son, wife and daughter, in alphabetical order.
