Geir Moseid is a Norwegian photographer living and working in Oslo, Norway. Since graduating from London College of Communication in 2008, Moseid has been working on multiple photographic series, operating at the point where documentary practice and staged photography meet.
By working with a 4x5 inch camera Moseid aims to challenge how one can talk about and discuss social, anthropological and economical issues in contemporary photography.
Communication and a humanistic approach has always been the base of the practice, while the narrative elements within the work often remain open and ambiguous. A focus on colour, texture, ambiguity and human relationships of various kinds forms the base of his practice.
