Colours of the moon The backdrop for this series is the beautiful moon-like landscape of Hardangervidda in Norway (the largest mountain plateau of its kind in Europe) which she began photographing after she started snow kiting. Charlotte´s interest in kiting and her relationship with nature has been a therapeutic journey which has been as much about fear as it has about joy. As a seven year old child, her first ever sailing trip turned into a terrifying experience after her boat capsized. It would take several years before she decided to venture out onto the water again. She experienced the same terrifying fear once more, this time attached to a kite. Stormy weather and a rookie error resulted in the wind grabbing the kite and pulling her along at high speed. This time she reacted differently and felt that she took back the control she once lost. Control against the forces of nature and the paralysing fear she had felt as a child on the boat. Her respect and humility for nature’s power is the starting point for this series that has been created over four years. As a photographer, she is no longer a participant, but an observer of the play from the outside. When she steps away from the scene and views it at a distance, the play along with the weather turns into a surreal observation of reality and the kites suddenly become little puppets merging into a colorful dance with nature.
