Rune Guneriussen: In the Land of Midnight Light


The new year is already a few days old, but many are still living in the land of Christmas vacation. For one photographer, everyday is like living in the land of unbound imagination. It's easy to understand why when you see the creations of Rune Guneriussen in the Land of Midnight Light.

Rune Guneriussen is an artist that works with installations and photography, juxtaposing manmade objects with scenes in nature. Some of his artworks are done at night when the waning sun or waxing moon provides enough light to blanket the landscape yet allows for enough darkness to conjure up some mystery to the scene. Add some man made electronic devices and what results are images straight out of a 21st century elvish fantasy novel or a dwarfish tale.

Check out a few of his fantastical images below.



There are more of Rune Guneriussen's creations in the Land of the Midnight Light over at his website.

I've seen one of his photos before, but was always wondering who made it because I couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks, these are really cool!

Now that is something beautiful I would've NEVER come up with on my own. Wow!

wow, this is so weird but really cool. It brings new light to the term "creative art." I really like the ones with the office lights by the pond. Thanks for sharing this!

Welcome back! These are some very interesting images, I love how out of place those lamps are, imagine stumbling across one of these setups in the middle of nowhere. and the contrast between the incandescent lights and the twilight glow remind me of street lamps in a cityscape.
