At the Edge of the World

Stig Eklund's urban photography seems to be pure documentary, opening a distant eye onto his lonely subjects.

Eklund's camera lingers on the darkened but captivating details of the city, transforming its citizens into murky denizens while heightening their ethereal demeanors.

Eklund's camera style is so strong that it can even shroud a street lamp, so that, instead of light, it seemingly emits darkness and shadows.

Eklund's vision drapes geometrically, clashing urban beauty with the sooty persona of a Norwegian artist who spends much of the year in a glowering twilight.

Mysterious and very haunting image - I can almost see a figure emerging from the middle shadow. It looks like an old mezzotint print - it has the atmosphere of a Martin Lewis etching, a US artist who was a friend and contemporary of Edward Hopper.
