From what I understand Simen’s photography employs taxidermy and live animals carefully superimposed on backdrops photographed in Iceland, Norway, and elsewhere. Not sure which this is but it’s impressive nevertheless.
Until the Kingdom Comes explores the tension between the ideal and the grotesque, the real and the unreal and revels in the gritty underside of illusion. With glitter, crystal, pearls, beads, taxidermy, bones, cocoons, dead bugs, feathers and masses of hairlike fiber, Johan creates the landscapes of your dreams just as they threaten to slip into nightmare drawing you in by their superficial luminosity. *From Flavorwire
