Photographers Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen have made the series of photographs “Eyes as big as plates”, which portrays elderly people into Northern landscapes. The subjects are dressed and covered like they were part of the landscape, a way to reflect the return of the body to the nature, using natural materials.


Le fotografe Karoline Hjorth e Riitta Ikonen hanno realizzato la serie “Eyes as big as plates”, che ritrae persone anziane nei poetici paesaggi del Nord Europa. I soggetti sono vestiti e rivestiti come se fossero parte integrante del paesaggio, un modo per riflettere sul ritorno del corpo alla natura stessa, utilizzando materiali naturali.
