Nordkapp museet Honningsvåg–Utstillingen forlenges til ut august:

Vi er stolt av å presentere vår nye fotoutstilling med bilder av Leif Gabrielsen og Kåre Kivijärvi. To anerkjente fotografer fra Finnmark som begge startet karrieren med hvert sitt bokskamera, Kivijärvi som 12-åring i Hammerfest og Gabrielsen som 14-åring i Honningsvåg. Begge har senere arbeidet som journalist-fotograf og senere frilans fotograf. Kunstnerne leker med lys og skygge, kontraster og grafikk. Bildene reflekterer oppveksten i Finnmark og motivene er sentrert rundt identitet, barn og oppvekst.

Henie Onstad Kunstsenter is devoting this year’s exhibition of works from its collection to the photographic artist Kåre Kivijärvi. Kivijärvi is primarily known as a master of black and white photography, and was the first Norwegian photographer to win nationwide acclaim as a visual artist. Henie Onstad’s collection contains a number of key works by Kivijärvi which, along with works on loan from The Museum of Reconstruction in Hammerfest and Norway’s Sami Parliament, have been brought together to show the full breadth of his oeuvre in the exhibition Kåre Kivijärvi – Artist with a Camera.

Kåre Kivijärvi was born in Hammerfest in 1938. He is known as Norway’s first photographic artist, and in 1971 one of his works was accepted for the annual National Art Exhibition as its first ever photograph. His characteristic style is black-and-white photography, and it was for this that he earned artistic recognition . Kivijärvi worked periodically as a photojournalist, and for his reporting he chose topics that he found interesting in terms of their potential imagery . Many of his most famous works were originally published as feature articles in newspapers or weeklies . His pictures would often operate on the intersection between photojournalism and art . His photographs are considered to be among the most important Norwegian works of art of the 20th century.

Kivijärvi was a Kven, could speak Finnish and lived for many years in Finland. Having lived the life of a bohemian artist in Oslo and Helsinki, Kivijärvi returned to Hammerfest where he wrote and photographed for the Finnmark Dagblad daily newspaper during the years 1967 – 70. Some of the photographs from this period, including The doctor’s waiting room, have been described as his greatest works of art . He produced a number of major feature reports from Finnmark county, focusing on the living conditions of the local people in an age characterised by modernisation and depopulation. The photographs that he chose to exhibit as works of art from this period appear as documentaries, with people as their main motifs .

By the early 1970s he had already ceased to engage in artistic photography . His final years were marked by illness, and he died in 1991 at the age of only 53 years.
