Happy new year! We have major news for you: Books have arrived in Norway! … Book progress update!
Eyes as Big as Plates 2 is now at the binders in Germany and we are organising the book’s next steps into storages and warehouses around the world. We are expecting to hold a copy in our hands sometime by January 2022 (no, we have not yet seen a copy with our own eyes, this is one mighty long incubation time!) As soon the books arrive from Germany to our tender care in New York and Norway, we will swiftly send them to all of you. … Wrapping up at the binders!
We are thrilled to finally let out the big secret: Eyes as Big as Plates will join a major exhibition in the UK next spring! Opening in May 2022, Our Time on Earth at The Barbican Centre , London invites visitors to experience a range of radical visions and perspectives of our shared planet, exploring Earth as a community to which we all belong – humans as just one species among millions. … Our Time On Earth – exhibition news!
Printing in progress! High fives and cheerleading moves to the whole team in Sweden, right now in full swing with the cover and field notes section of the Eyes as Big as Plates 2 book!

It’s been nearly two years since the Eyes as Big as Plates duo last saw each other live off screen, and equally long since any new additions to the series. We are therefore beyond pumped and ecstatic for this weekend’s reunion, exhibition opening, artist talk and new shoot! … Reunion, exhibition, artist talk and new shoot – Munich, here we come!
As part of the photography festival Oslo Negativ‘s artist talk series titled “Oslo Negativ Inspirerer”, Karoline will represent the Eyes as Big as Plates duo on stage at 2 pm Norwegian time tomorrow in the beautiful old Deichman library, sharing snippets from the upcoming book! Check out the festival programme for lots of great exhibitions, talks and more info (in Norwegian only).
As part of Fotografiets Dag / Photography Day 2021, Eyes as Big as Plates is invited to give an artist talk at Preus Museum in Horten in Norway. We look forward to sharing field notes, process images and snippets from the upcoming book, along with our favourite tips on how to best approach strangers, where to go (and where not to go) hunting for beach cabbage, and how to shoot with medium format cameras in all weather conditions. … Artist talk tomorrow at Fotografiets Dag / Photography Day 2021
