Edward Munch Photographer and artist

Edward Munch (1863-1944) bought his first camera in February 1902. At the exhibition "Edward Munch Photographer and artist"presents a large selection of his many photographs and films, and also shows the less known side of the artist.

Munch used photography as an experimental medium and often set himself in front of the lens. He was a curious photographer who took advantage of clear “mistakes” such as distortion, blurry movements, and unusual camera angles. Photographic experiments are directly related to Munch's design language in painting and graphics, but Munch did not publish photographs in public.

Research and poetic paintings show the artist himself and his immediate environment: a "selfie" from a nervous clinic, beach or garden in a house outside of Oslo.
