Henning has some rather lovely silhouette images to share with us. A project born out of running through the archives. Sometimes that is the best way. Check it out.

Silhouettes of Oslo

I was looking through my archive and realised that I had a lot of silhouette-shots. So I collected them and started hunting for more. And it ended up with this series. Silhouettes is something that has always fascinated me – visually, but also the effect it has on the viewer. In a way I think that a silhouettes represents humans more that the actual persons that are depicted, and that makes the effect more general and we interpret the pictures based on our own experiences.



And a few words about me. I’m born and raised in Oslo. I mostly do street photography, in Oslo and whereever I travel. You can see more of my work on my website: I also share some photos on google plus:



Best Regards

    I really enjoyed these images not only for the silhouettes, but also for the solitude in each image. Even the image with two people still made them appear very isolated. Great series!! Thank you for sharing
