Eivind Hansen b. 1992 in Tromsø is a fashion- and portrait photographer based in London, UK, who loves using bright colours and floral accents throughout his photography. He grew up doing part-time contemporary circus in the northern city of Tromsø, Norway, where the winters are long and dark. This, without any doubt, has influenced the way he work as a photographer; the bright colours give him the opportunity to combat the annual seasonal affective disorder during the winter months and provide a fun and happy atmosphere to develop the colour in his work. He studied Fashion Photography at London College of fashion and his photographs are published in magazines such as Vogue, Wonderland Magazine, HYMEN magazine.
Eivind Hansen f. 1992 i Tromsø er en mote- og portrettfotograf basert i London, Storbritannia, som elsker å bruke sterke farger og blomster arrangementer i sine fotografiske uttrykk. Han vokste opp med å arbeide deltid på et samtidssirkus i Nord-Tromsø, hvor vintrene er lange og mørke. Dette har uten tvil påvirket måten han jobber som fotograf på; De sterke farger gir ham muligheten til å bekjempe årlig sesongmessig nedstemthet i vintermånedene, og gi en morsom og lykkelig atmosfære for å utvikle fargene i sitt arbeid. Han studerte Fashion Photography ved London College of Fashion og hans fotografier er publisert i magasiner som Vogue, Wonderland Magazine, HYMEN magazine.

The portrait series celebrates trans women to help raise awareness around the violence they face. Hansen chose to work with flowers because they are symbolic of strength, extravagance, femininity, rebirth and beauty.
Hansen was requested to create a series of images for HYMEN magazine. Inspired by science fiction he wanted to explore the use of neon lights in context of the human body and the nude. Instead of subjecting the models to the lighting they take an active role, stabbing their bodies with luminous tubes. Geometrical composition creates a direct visual link between the images using pairs and triptychs. Tete-a-Tete could mean an intimate dialogue or a private affair.
Follow the line.
