Carsten Ingemann’s artistic practice unfolds in the space between a distinctly Nordic landscape tradition and a psychological space less easily defined. Darkness is at the centre of his endeavour, with all the complex connotations it evokes. The landscapes conjured by the artist are made visible through the extended eye of the camera and the long exposure technique he employs. Thus, his works reveal the beauty and mystery of that which under normal circumstances remains hidden.
His works represent an alternative view of Denmark, focusing on the silent outskirts in contrast to the bustle of the city. As a result, the pictures are an accentuation of the inherently local, which still exists in a global world.
To his fine art practice, Carsten Ingemann brings a certain sensibility towards his subject matter, honed during his more than three decade long career as a renowned photographer, documenting political events, conflicts and war zones from around the world.
