Every time I’ve been hanging out with Agnes Thor and some American dude asks what her full name is, they all go ‘whoohaa, that is such a great name’. I know. It’s the name of a genius and a star. Thor’s photos are sort of like her name: first they come off as dreamy, girly and sweet, amost giving a hazy David Hamilton vibe.

But when you look closer, the nature backdrop she so often uses for her subjects starts to look less romantic and more brutal, like the last thing still uncontrollable by humans, fog, mountains, endless skies, deep forests and seas. A Mother Nature that is more powerful than any American dude could ever dream to be. Awesomeness.
