Lars Vilhelmsen’s work is characterized by the notion of creating a unique art space where the traces of human comings and goings intersect with the pristine, empty spaces in which he places them. Using the medium of photography in a conceptual way, he creates narratives that are personified through the juxtaposition of various objects. The resulting images become descriptions of the detritus of lives lived - stories told which appear to hover in space, somehow suspended in time.
