Overview Et lite skritt for mennesket

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. So we can just imagine how much a thousand words are worth.

In Rune Hjemås’ Et lite steg for mennesket, Fotografier (1985–2018), we see the world through a literary camera lens which moves from Beograd to Pyongyang, from Oslo to Trondheim. Mostly random people are photographed, either in the centres of their own vital existences or on the edges of something bigger and more life-threatening.

This apparently atomised collection of short texts gradually weaves a whole pattern of impressions and feelings which brings you nearer to yourself and others, nearer your surroundings and the surroundings’ surroundings, not unlike the feeling of browsing through a good old-fashioned, patiently compiled photo album.

Reviews Et lite skritt for mennesket

"Tekster om å se seg selv som en fremmed, til å kjenne seg igjen i. (...) Gjennom 89 sider og nesten like mange tekster knipser Rune F. Hjemås øyeblikkskisser av mennesker som tar et skritt til side og betrakter seg selv, ofte med den fremmedes blikk."

Fartein Horgar, Adresseavisen
