Fine art photography book PLAY by Lars Andreas Dybvik
The book PLAY by photographer Lars Andreas Dybvik

The book is a composition. It is composed like a piece of music, visual music. Lars Andreas Dybvik has chosen images and layout to create a dynamic travel from start to end. Just like a composer when creating music. Some sequences are calm, others more dynamic. The book is not following a traditional path, sectioned by seasons of the year or geography. Every image is carefully picked because it creates harmony, or disharmony, with its adjacent photographs. Thus create a greater and more interesting whole, than each image would alone. By composition, technique, and layout, new landscapes are created. For you to interpret. For you to find the music within.

Art historian Gustav Svihus Borgersen has written the foreword. He reflects on the differences and similarities between music and picture. Photography unfolds in space, music in time. Theoretically a dead end. Still, there are similarities that can complement and reinforce the two.
