Adam Jeppesen

It must be Danish day here at the Exposure Project because I also stumbled upon the work of photographer Adam Jeppesen today. His cinematic, often surreal images are both beautiful and at times unsettling. There is something completely captivating about Jeppesen's work, something that I can't quite put my finger on, but that I find absolutely enchanting. I couldn't find much in the way of a description of his work, except for this brief write up from the Steidl website:

"Adam Jeppesen’s Wake was assembled over a period of several months in the secluded backwoods of Finland. Taken while traveling on assignment, the photographs document the constantly shifting geography of the artist over the course of seven years. Rather than minister to any notion of Nordic melancholy, the artist reconstructs history into an intuitive, dream-like sequence that reflects the emotional and aesthetic clarity afforded by solitude."
