The portrait of Carol is a piece from the series ’Light’. In this body of work Norlander explores themes of psychological conditions. To understand the subject on a deeper level she collaborates with a psychologist, together they study the topic and how to communicate it in imagery. Norlander is portraying these elements of human conditions by making use of symbolism, contrasts, shapes and layers. With the large format camera, multiply exposures, alternative lighting techniques and movements she manipulates her images in such way that is only possible with the right ”tools”. She believes that through analogue recording you will reach closer to the actual experience. The medium forces you to be precise and focused and therefore more present in the moment of capture.
