Summary: Blå skog/Blue Forest is the manifestation of his long running forest project, the woods seen in glimpses and openings towards something bigger, captured on tungsten film (er det riktig?) and in medium format. Through subjective color tones Andersen lets us see the the forest in an un-romantizised and alien fashion which begets a renewed fascination by the landscape and a deeper understanding of what the Norwegian poet Sigbjørn Obstfelder hinted at with his line “ how strange a place to be”.
