About Erik Brede

Erik Brede is a critically acclaimed photographer and digital artist whose work has been exhibited and published in France, Italy, UK, the United States and Norway. He was born in 1971 in Svolvaer, Lofoten Islands, Norway, where his photography journey started at the age of 11 after his father introduced him to the great magic of film development and post-production in his low budget darkroom. Even if the old analogue darkroom is replaced by Photoshop and Lightroom, his vision and creative ideas are still the same.
