Scott Richards Contemporary Art presents Northern Light, a collection of black and white figurative photographs by Halldin+Maule, the creative team of renown photorealist painter Anna Halldin-Maule and her husband, photographer Tom Maule.

This new series of black and white photographs honors Anna's Scandinavian roots while revealing each artist's adjustment to a recent move from Tom's Hawaiian homeland, to Anna's native Sweden. Shot on Sweden's coastal region of Bohuslän and printed on archival Hahnemühle paper, the photos aptly capture the enigmatic nordic light while juxtaposing the exuberance of youth with timeless, classic Scandinavian simplicity.

"The photos are meant to feel both old and new at the same time. There are elements which could place the subject in the 19th-century, but there is also a tug of something contemporary which pulls the viewer back to the here and now" says Tom Maule who considers Ingmar Bergman's haunting cinematography and August Sander's austere photographs his primary sources of inspiration.
