Norwegian artist Torbjørn Rødland has been described as being "to photography what the Pet Shop Boys are to pop music." His contemporary, Gil Blank, once described his photographs as "blatantly retarded in a consciously agile way." For fifteen years, Rødland has been making work that baffles, finding commonality between nudists, priests, Nordic landscapes and curious still lifes of food, such as one of George W. Bush's favorite things: Diet Coke, tortilla chips, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Häagen-Dazs "Pralines & Cream" and Field of Dreams. That's only the beginning. It was an absolute pleasure to have the chance to speak with him about his books, his work and the meaning of images.
