About the work :

Untitled 6, Shadow Within, Norway/ USA is a work by contemporary photographer Christian Houge taken from the series « Shadow Within ».

In this photograph, two wolves face each other in a river, giving us, the viewer, the impression to be in the water with them. The outlines of the wolves appeared to be sketched and here and there fade into the movement of the ripples in a decidedly poetic fashion.

 

'Shadow Within' is a photograph series of wolves taken in Norway and in the USA. The intention of the artist is to explore the relationship between man and wolf, with an aim to determining his own relationship with himself through reflections about this enigmatic and highly stigmatized animal.

 

In fact, the artist said: « Man has always mystified the wolf through tales and legends. Everything we've ever heard about wolves since our childhood has transformed this animal into an unforgiving monster in our minds. We remain petrified by his eyes, his howl, his jaws, the pack…  And yet working on this project I learned that wolf and man have quite similar traits from a behavioral point of view and that the wolf seems to outline the darker side of man. I wanted the viewer to get in touch with his own instinct and his own inner emotions. His instinct will guide him in the interpretation of the situation he is viewing, simply through the analysis of the wolf's body language and its stare. The viewer can have a different interpretation depending on his or her own personal associations. It could be aggression, skepticism, fear, resignation, vulnerability or even curiosity. »

 

The artist wanted to put together a series of photographs of wolves in their natural habitat, literally seeking them out in the simplest fashion imaginable and just capturing the moment with what he terms as "the eye of modern man", i.e. his camera.  

 

Christian Houge's photography is sold in limited edition prints.
