• Wolf in the woods

Illustration: Norwegian Wood by Andrea Lie

Andreas Lie’s

The idea is simple but executed to perfection. A double digital exposure to combine two different photographs and create a new and unexpected image. With the series Norwegian Wood, which made him famous, Andreas Lie, a 25-year-old Norwegian, plays with the boundary between photography and illustration and pays homage to the wild beauty of the Scandinavian woods where he lives.

The typical image produced by Lie is composed of an animal (wolves, foxes, bears, squirrels) removed from its context and then filled in with a panoramic photograph, a landscape, that is reminiscent of the habitat in which the animal lives. Forests and mountain peaks come together with the poetry of the animal kingdom and add to it, becoming indispensible, interwoven for life.
