A life changing journey in pictures

Freitag, 16. November 2018



More than 20 years ago, Ken Schluchtmann undertook a journey that would change his life forever. What started off as an ordinary vacation evolved into an immersive experience, stepping inside an entirely different world featuring a visual intensity impossible to be captured in words.

Several years later – by then Schluchtmann had quit his law studies and was graduating from Lette-Verein Berlin as a photo designer – he specialized in architectural and landscape photography and began to develop the unique visual language that characterizes his iconic style. 

Since then, Ken Schluchtmann has returned to Norway more than 15 times and is now sharing the results of his trips during the past eight years. His exhibition „Architecture and Landscape in Norway“ at the Felleshus of the Nordic Embassies in Berlin is an examination of the country, its impressive landscapes and its contemporary architecture.
