first part on ongoing series of "behind the image" from mailorderbabies site

"She is almost beyond human, a mythic creature that is forever the heroine in our vivid memory, yet we cannot quite remember her face..."

Today we begin a "Story Behind the Image" series for each of Lasse's art prints. We will be taking each available art print and asking questions about the setting, project background, and his ideas that went into the making of each image.

“Study of a Girl in Wolfskin”

“The story behind Soup’s ‘Beauty of Our Youth’ was based our past memories when we were young and full-spirited. Here was a beautiful girl from our past. She is almost beyond human, a mythic creature that is forever the heroine in our vivid memory, yet we cannot quite remember her face—that’s why her face is blurred.”

“We hiked for hours out in the wilderness just scouting for the perfect location when the light just became perfect. Norway’s landscape always emits a mysterious feel in the air so I knew it was the perfect backdrop. Hence, the mythological feel in the overall image unintentional comes through. It all just came together and we got the perfect shot.

“You have to use your imagination sometimes when you reminisce about the past and you should still embrace the wonders of youth just as you saw them back then.” -LH
