Illuminated MomentsEraker, Rune: Øyeblikk av lys
A photograph can catch and hold a moment in time and preserve it for posterity. Rune Eraker's book is full of such emotive pictures. A very special kind of photographer, Eraker subscribes to a European photojournalistic tradition in which the emphasis is on the purely documentary and where composition and light combine to enhance the image. For many years he has portrayed human life in places and settings the world over. The text is by Eva Klerck Gange, curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo, and Gunnar Kopperud, a journalist and author.
