About the Artist

Simen Johan is a photographic artist, filmmaker, and sculptor primarily working in contemporary photography. He gained recognition in the early 90s, being one of the first photographers to experiment with digital manipulation alongside traditional photographic techniques. His work spans across various genres, from portraiture to landscape. Operating intuitively, he aims to raise existential questions through his art.

In Simen Johan's series "Until the Kingdom Comes" he combines paradisiacal landscapes with reality, aiming to deceive the viewer by raising questions about what is real and what is not within the image. All elements in his works are captured by himself, using only natural light. The animals depicted in his works are always life-sized in the exhibition space.
