Photographs by Mette Tronvoll.
Schirmer/Mosel, Germany, 2009. 100 pp., 80 color illustrations, 9½x11".
The Norwegian photographer’s first monographic survey features early portraits of people in landscapes, cityscapes, and architecture; pictures of the closed system of a Norwegian anti-terror commando center, where photography is normally strictly prohibited; and images of Greenland, Mongolia, and the Japanese island of Goto Fukue that reflect Tronvoll’s special interest in anthropology.
Born in Trondheim in 1965, Norwegian photographer Mette Tronvoll studied at Parsons Schools of Design in New York before friends introduced her to photographic artists of the Dusseldorf School in Germany. Mainly in color, her photographic work is in the tradition of documentary photography and characterized by her special interest in anthropology. The living conditions in Inner Mongolia, which she studied for many years, feature prominently in her work.
