With this 12-year project set in the landscape surrounding Oslo, Norwegian photographer Marius Schultz (born 1962)—a member of the Norwegian collective Forbundet Frie Fotografer—presents an immersive view of nature's vastness and purity. The main characters are the trees and their greatness: they interact harmoniously with the water, the endless sky, the open landscapes and the intense colors of the seasons. The photographer tells both a universal tale of the power of these trees, and a personal narrative of the microcosm in which the photographer and his children were born and live every day.
In A Conversation with Nature, the photographer's act of seeing draws the readers into a magical and faraway world, and invites them to take part in this poetic story.
