Photographer Agnes Thor explains her shoot, Aurora Borealis to Hunger TV.

TELL US WHAT INSPIRED THIS CONCEPT?

I was very inspired by Swedish folklore and myths, stories that I grew up with as a kid. In them there’s always a sense of double meanings and things that transform from one thing to another; a rock becomes a creature, the mist transforms in to dancing fairies. This idea that an object or landscape can have significance beyond its shape and appearance was a starting point for the project. The work is also an exploration of memory in relation to the present time – I travelled to France, from where I have my first memory, in combination with revisiting and portraying the place where I grew up, and the work came out from that journey.

WHAT INFLUENCES YOU?

Scandinavian and Dutch paintings from the 19th century, reading great fiction, movies like The Seventh Seal and The Tree of Life, and being outside in the wild.

WHEN DID YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH PHOTOGRAPHY?

My first crush was as a kid, I was nine when my parents got me a point and shoot, and I portrayed my friends and horses. When I was in high school my love grew and it’s been a passionate relationship ever since.

WHAT ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR?

To see the world and to explore new places, going on small adventures and to exhibit my work more.

COMPLETE THE SENTENCE – IT’S BETTER TO BE [BLANK] THAN [BLANK].

It’s better to be broke than heartbroken.
