Tom Erlandsen: Born 1948 in Oslo, Norway.

Educated, end 60's by  Christer Strömholm, and Tor Ivan Odulf, Fotoskolan, Stockholm, Sweden. Since 1975: living  in Switzerland.

Most pictures you find here are from different places in Europe, I may admit that a large part comes from Oslo , but not  at all , all.

But as my Refuge in Oslo will be sold, I think it will be (very much less of it, with the time)............and then...............?

The small Village, the medieval city does not belong to the alps, but it has its very own distinct character and style.

by Night  , a small amount of colour in the dark(, just a trial).

Out of my Window.  I wanted a Web_Cam, was too complicated,  instead I made the this  frames  ........what's better?

Some personal reflections:
upon photography (in writing) is included: under photography you will find an english version, the same is there in Norwegian .   

Books contains a list of more or less important items on the debate on art and photographic theory, mostly some years old.
