Riitta Ikonen and Karoline HjorthEyes as Big as Plates, Norway.

Inspired by the romantics’ belief that folklore is the clearest reflection of the soul of a people, Eyes as Big as Plates started out as a play on characters and protagonists from Norwegian folklore. (—Ikonen)

By casting elderly locals to pose in and amongst Scandinavia’s vast natural landscapes, the duo seek to evoke the fantastical stories and characters traditional to Nordic folklore and mythology. (—from a magazine I read on a plane)
