Interior No. 5 is a stunning example of the haunting beauty so emblematic of Sondergaard's work. The light-filled environments in her signature Scandinavian palette, can easily be mistaken for paintings. In this series, she elegantly contrasts stillness with a surreal, unsettling sense of abandonment. Sondergaard's work is prized to have brought a fresh energy to the increasingly popular theme of architecture in contemporary photography.
