Our exhibition

Colour my past

8 Seasons have a permanent exhibition of pictures taken by the Northern Lights researcher Sophus Tromholt. Later Per Ivar Somby started an art project with adding colour to photographs of his ancestors. His book, “People Under the Northern Lights”, was published in 2019. The book is a trilingual book of photos, where Somby presents a selection of Sophus Tromholt’s photographs from Finnmark, in color. The artist’s own portrait mirrors Tromholt’s original style, even down to the contemporary posture. The images is unique in their style and have been included in UNESCO’s list of world documentaries, from 2012.
