Geir Moseid


Geir Moseid is a Norwegian photographer living and working in Oslo, Norway. Since graduating from London College of Communication in 2008, Moseid has been working on multiple photographic series, operating at the point where documentary practice and staged photography meet. By working with a 4x5 inch camera Moseid aims to challenge how one can talk about and discuss social, anthropological and economical issues in contemporary photography. Moseid seeks a connection with the viewer and the world through the shared experience of common, recognizable scenarios. Whether they stem from the everyday, TV, cinema or advertising. The work aims to trigger emotional responses in the viewer that stem from the politics of stereotyping, gender classification, the forming of independent and group identities, and the barrier of prejudice. Communication and a humanistic approach has always been the base of the practice, while the narrative elements within the work often remains open and ambiguous. A focus on colour, texture, ambiguity and human relationships of various kinds forms the base of his practice.
