Linn Pedersen is a Norwegian photographer based in Sortland in the northern part of Norway. In her work she combines documentary and the poetic in her depiction of out-of-style consumer goods, landscapes, constructions and the human figure. The works contains an expressive and introvert quality. Atmospherically conditions, materiality of an object and emotional projections are crucial in her work. Pedersen works with analog photography, cyanotype and sculptural installation.
In the past years, Pedersen’s work has developed around her concept ‘sedimentality’ – a clever coupling of the words sediment and sentimentality. In several exhibitions and a publication, series of black and white photography of scenes from Pedersen’s surroundings (landscapes, bodies, buildings) are paired with images of cracked and broken clay, sprayed with neon colours or metallic paints.
