About the Book
The book presents a number of selected photos taken by Marc Kiska during the decade 2004-2014, including his serie Alt for Norge. A 7 pages preface, written by Lulu, guides the viewer masterfully trough the world and artistic vision of the artist. The dark and somewhat loaded atmospheres of Kiska´s photographic work allure to the themes of gloom and the sad weight an adolescent is forced to carry when not being accepted; when forced to suffer in silent solitude, under the shadow and tyranny of the normal and self-righteous. This obscurity of some of Kiska´s work can be burdensome. All the same, the images have some sweetness to them, a melancholy and nostalgia in contrast to depression and regret. The photography of the young artist tries to depict a space of resilience that lingers in a youngster’s capacity for dreaming, finding comfort and meaning in his curiosity and wonder, so easily lost and ridiculed on the threshold of adulthood.
