The work of Norwegian photographer Dag Alveng (born 1953) boasts an exquisite technical quality and often depicts overlooked everyday scenes. His latest project with the Telemark Art Museum documents Norway's latest addition to the UNESCO World Heritage List, Rjukan-Notodden Industrial Heritage (2015).
Norwegian photographer Dag Alveng’s new project, Racing, has allowed him to combine his vocation of photography with his passion for car racing (specifically 1980s Italian motorcars). Alveng’s lustrous black-and-white images of these classic cars and their finely sculpted components reveal them as works of art in themselves.

Dag Alveng's beautiful black and white photographs are a study, as the title suggests, in light. Taken at the Norwegian seashore, these landscapes, seascapes, and family scenes all have something to say about the play of sun and shadow and about the power of light in the Northern summer. These are quiet photographs with the remarkably rich tones that Alveng is known for, and they are exquisitely printed. They have the power to transport us to his idyllic summer, because, as Robert Adams writes, "Dag Alveng's photographs are as peaceful as their subject." This is a photo essay of a summer we would all like to spend.
