In a personal project that focuses on the mysteries of the human consciousness, Norway-based creative Øystein Aspelund showcases his skills and mastery of the lens with a surreal conceptual photography series. The images share an aesthetic that can be both identified as incredibly mysterious and dreadfully ominous. Øystein Aspelund draws inspiration from a number of subjects and locations, attempting to define the characteristics and methods of the subconsciousness and to visually represent the uncertainty of the state that comes with reality.

The surreal conceptual photography series is meant to strike an ambiguous balance between truth and fiction. In the images, Øystein Aspelund attempts to capture small increments of time that reveal a direct correlation between daily realities and subconscious thought. Titled HIBERNATION IV, the series shows "man and his relationship to the landscape as an investigative tool."
