The ongoing photography series Eyes as Big as Plates by Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen started out in 2011 studying personifications of nature and folkloric explanations of natural phenomena. A decade later it has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging in nature, taking the Norwegian-Finnish artist duo to fifteen countries on a quest to understand our relationship with our surroundings. This second book in the series features new portraits produced in collaboration with retired wrestling coaches, pub patrons, Sami reindeer herders, Aboriginal uncles, kantele players, librarians, wild boar hunters, and surfers across four continents. To mark the project’s ten-year anniversary, it also includes contributions from several guest writers and an extended field notes section revealing the behind-the-scenes action of each portrait.

The book was honoured with a bronze medal at the German Photo Book Award.
