Subversive Photographs Of Domestic Life By Geir Moseid

For the series ‘Plucked’, Oslo-based photographer Geir Moseid captures everyday moments in a serene, yet slightly morbid way. The staged scenes take place in a home environment that is typically perceived as a secure and comfortable space, but it is often the place where domestic violence and other crimes occur behind closed doors. In a statement about the series, Moseid says: “The images are talking about the everyday with a calm and beautiful surface, but that, on closer inspection, raises question about the apparent peaceful depiction, juxtaposing the viewer’s emotional response to the photographs with a subtler sinister undercurrent. (…) By plucking specific moments of everyday narrative, my work is confronting the way in which social truth can be depicted.”
