Kim Ramberghaug: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

Within the black covers of “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter,” one hundred and ten images unfold, pictures taken over the last couple of years by Norwegian photographer, Kim Ramberghaug.

Animated landscapes, desolate interiors and unaffected portraits are interwoven into a mysterious multitude of narratives. The cinematic quality of the photographs spurs the imagination. You find yourself posing questions about the surrounding circumstances, the before and after.

To whom is the girl in the glittery top talking to over the phone? What is the man crouching behind the hood of the car photographing? Where is that magically illuminated tree located?

Be it integrated by colour schemes, subject matter or associative common denominators, the spreads in the book are lucidly organized. Ramberghaug’s keen eye and visual fingerspitzengef├╝hl is evident and ever present throughout “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.”
