From David Emitt Adams’ article for Lenscratch:

[Lundgren’s] work pushes past the boundaries of documentation into a purposeful culmination of the uncanny and sublime. The collective works in ‘Matter’ refreshingly remind us that we, the viewer, have indeed not “seen everything before.”

These works reveal a side of our world (a world) that is treacherous and unforgiving, yet arresting. In spending time with this work, I feel fear and awe, and I attempt to search for the answers in the endless questions these photographs propose. In his own words he “…draws on a deep current in photographic tradition that takes the natural world as a seat of transcendence.”
