Biography

Morten Spaberg is a Norwegian landscape photographer. He is mainly interested in the use of the camera for documenting the different landscapes around him. Spaberg takes photos both in colour and black and white, analogue and digital, but most of them are horizontal. Photography is perhaps most useful when it says something about the world we live and its different landscapes– things that we maybe would not notice if we didn’t point the camera at it.

Biography

Morten Spaberg is a Norwegian portrait photographer. He is mainly interested in the use of the camera for documenting the people around him and their different faces. Spaberg takes photos both in colour and black and white, analogue and digital, but most of them are vertical. Photography is perhaps most useful when it says something about the world we live and its different people – things that we maybe would not notice if we didn’t point the camera at it.
