GRINDAKERBOOK-1008662

In summer 2012 I got a fantastic offer from the Oslo based design office panorama design to join a book project for Grindaker Landscape Architects. I have worked with the guys from panorama design for over 13 years now and it is always a joy to gather around a large table and discuss ideas and thoughts. In fact it was the first book project for them and I was happy to get a good portion of freedom and the possibility to have an important part of the forming process.

Grindaker is the largest office for landscape architecture in Norway and was founded by Morten Grindaker in 1953. The book was ment as a celebration of their 60th anniversary. In their portfolio you can find huge and prestigious projects like Holmenkollen, but also small private gardens. The process made me aware of the fact, that in order to create you first need to destroy. A quite basic reflection of the different places. The cycles of life through all four seasons and the appearance of light through the day was a guiding line through the whole process, beside the relationship of humans to their environment and themselves. In the end Grindakers work is created for humans. We photographed altogether 40 different projects. My assistant Simen Øvergaard took over some of them. The final result is a selection of almost 300 images and shows the variety of their work.

During a period of 1,5 years a Leica S and the whole specter of S-lenses were used. I was very astonished that I could use the Leica S in -26 degrees without the change of a battery and all equipment functioned pristine during this period. But mostly I was astonished over the quality in the printed book. Here the advantage of a medium format sensor combined with best lens quality gets obvious. A fact which isn’t always so obvious on a 72 dpi screen in comparison to smaller sensor. The book found its way to the national library and we are very proud of the result.
