Ulla Schildt is a Finish born photographer currently based in Oslo, Norway. She will be launching her solo exhibition ‘A Rare Visitor’ this Saturday at Glasgow's Street Level Photoworks until the 27th of March.
'The work is a study of spaces where ́nature ́ has been artificially constructed for people to experience it safely and easily. These artificial spaces allow people to feel in control of the natural world. Like photography, museums and zoos set up a relationship where man is no longer a part of nature but is a privileged observer.'
'They highlight the idea that these locations are built to maintain the illusion of wilderness in places that are totally man made. The work reflects people ́s desire to createorder and at the same time master the natural environment.'
