Rune Baashus

Photographer

Rune Baashus, born 1956 in Hamar, Norway.

Few people can say the have seen Ralph Lauren’s car collection, much less driven one of them.
Rune has had the rare opportunity of taking some of those cars out on the road, driven and photographed for an exclusive series that has been published all over the world.

 

From the Norwegian nature to the coasts of California, Rune uses the scenery to the fullest and serves it all up in a mixture of clean, crisp and graphic expression.
When you get to sit down with designers like Giugiaro, Bertone, Tom Tjaarda, Pininfarina among others to discuss the lines, light and shadows intended by the designer and then be able to take those objects out on the road, you can be sure the photographs end up with the expression the designers had in mind. And with Rune’s twist on all of it, it just becomes a work of art.
“My job is to use my eyes, capture the perfect moment that you probably never will see again. My photographs are almost always composed through the lense. During my search for the perfect picture, i find power and beauty in the details that surrounds us. What is important today is perhaps unimportant tomorrow, with my eyes fixed to the camera – I try to capture the meaning of the past.”
He has also transcended this into works within architecture, where he highlights the most realistic and impressive view of the objects. He has an idea on how the photo should end up, but his skill lies in the capability to frame up objects through the camera, use natural lighting and from there get the best result possible.
Rune has used several years on commercial photography, within advertising, the car industry, architectural and industrial photography. Over the recent years he has taken a step back from the commercial stuff, and taking on more self-indulged projects. With a background from graphic design, he also shows the ability to make the photos almost to the point of not being a photograph anymore.
There is some kind of loneliness in his photographs of landscapes and horizons, which have been a big part of the newest series published.
