Marius Schultz (Oslo, 1962) attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. He is a member of the Norwegian collective Forbundet Frie Fotografer. He has exhibited in different galleries and festivals such as “Høstutstillingen”. He won the LensCulture portfolio award 2014. Nature and water have always fascinated him and he returns to Norwegian nature when seeking the close and calm. He is attracted by the pictorial qualities of it. He also explores the human body in landscapes, creating metaphors for the cycle of life. The abstraction creates a separation between what one really sees and what is merely a playful and poetic composition made by nature; the reflection of the sky, the shadows of the reeds and the rippled surface complement each other and create aesthetic expressions.
