Our discussion leader in September is Harriet. She’s a very creative embroiderer, knitter, painter, and photographer, among other things. She loves shibas and books. She lives in Norway, and English is her second language. She communicates very well without my help, and the regulars here enjoy her “voice,” so I won’t be editing. Much. Just my usual butting in and puttering about.
Stian Hole was born March 20, 1969. He is a Norwegian Graphic Designer and Illustrator. He has worked with, Packaging, Logos, Company Branding, Thypography, Stamps Design, Book Covers, and he is a writer of books for children.
I found this in an old interview in a Newspaper: “In the books about Garmann he uses digital photos, also of himself and his children. He uses a time-consuming technique to make his own special visual style. He uses known bits and pieces and puts them together in new ways to make them melt together in seamless montages.”
In these two books about the young boy Garmann, do the text and the pictures tell the same story? Are the pictures and the text tools, companions, elements in the books that give the story a meaning to the viewer/the reader? In what way are they connected or disconnected?
