Fast City.

Fast City. Photographs by Morten Andersen. Oslo, 2000. Unpaged, numerous black-and-white and colour illustrations, 5½x7¼".

'Fast City' is "a captivating, fast-paced, blurry-eyed, whirlwind tour of Oslo, by one of her native sons. A great, visual journal that follows no rules and adheres to no philosophy".

Since this influential first book Norwegian photographer Morten Andersen has had a number of other books published and exhibited his work frequently.

Of 'Fast City' Andersen says:

"According to the I-Ching, boredom breeds darkness, and this may be truer in regards to Oslo than most other towns."

Both quotes from publisher's description.
