In “Norwegian Wood”, photographer France Dubois enters the fragile world of nightly landscapes and tender self-portraits. The manufactured, restrained poses of her own androgynous body contrast sharply with the images of the wild Norwegian forests.
“Norwegian Wood” is an emotionally weighty series that she made in Brussels and Scandinavia. A disease that had partly immobilised her made her reach for her camera. With the vulnerable self-portraits against a black background, she resists undergoing the disease and reacts to it. After she had been cured, she travelled to Norway where the expansive forests gave her a second wind.
