For his personal photo project during the previous eWorkshop «Finding Your Photographic Voice» I taught last autumn, Mike Mills, chose to focus on the modern opera house in Oslo. This opera house is situated right by the waterline and what most of all characterizes the architecture is the inclined rooftop that is open for the public to explore. While Mike photographed the opera house from all angles and in so doing both captured fascinating details and beautiful overall views, the strongest images came out of delving into the interaction between people and the building. He explored both traditional angles as well as seeking out new ways of framing the images. His photos are full of life and delight; making the viewers almost physically feel the visitors joyfulness and awe in their encounter with this very special architecture. The people in his photographs are not only extras in an interesting movie, but form a symbiotic relationship with the building they are exploring. It’s almost as one cannot exist without the other.
Photography is my work and still all fun for me. I try to develop my photographic approach and expression. It's a continues learning process - and I love it.
