UPA Visiting Artist

Torleif Lie

Torleif Lie is an award winning fine art photographer based in Stavanger, Norway.

His work captures not only the beauty of the natural world, but also the essence of a particular place. On the surface of his images the viewer can perhaps see an environmental message, or a celebration of the beauty of the natural world, but in the depth of his photographs one can sense a homage to the cultures that have inhabited these extraordinary locations for millenniums, the true essence of what is in front of us with its ancient resilience and beauty.

Torleif is also a multidisciplinary artist, including underwater imagery, and exquisite interior designs that reflect his spirit of excellence and immense attention to presentations, details and overall experiential perfection.
