Torbjørn Rødland (born 1970, Stavanger, Norway) is a Los Angeles-based photographer who creates portraits, still lives and landscapes, which simultaneously inhabit, defamiliarise and disrupt the realm of the everyday. With an often fetishistic approach to subjects, objects and materials, Rødland produces photographs that are intense, conceptually playful and psychologically evocative. Characterised by their double-edged allegories and underlying lyricism, Rødland’s staged scenarios ‘keep you in the process of looking’, simultaneously revealing layers of discomfort and pleasure.
