From the publisher: Dag Alveng's beautiful black and white photographs are a study, as the title suggests, in light. Taken at the Norwegian seashore, these landscapes, seascapes, and family scenes all have something to say about the play of sun and shadow and about the power of light in the Northern summer. These are quiet photographs with the remarkably rich tones that Alveng is known for, and they are exquisitely printed. They have the power to transport us to his idyllic summer, because, as Robert Adams writes, "Dag Alveng's photographs are as peaceful as their subject." This is a photo essay of a summer we would all like to spend.". Bookseller Inventory # 101489

Synopsis:

Dag Alveng's beautiful black and white photographs are a study, as the title suggests, in light. Taken at the Norwegian seashore, these landscapes, seascapes, and family scenes all have something to say about the play of sun and shadow and about the power of light in the Northern summer. These are quiet photographs with the remarkably rich tones that Alveng is known for, and they are exquisitely printed. They have the power to transport us to his idyllic summer, because, as Robert Adams writes, "Dag Alveng's photographs are as peaceful as their subject." This is a photo essay of a summer we would all like to spend.
