It´s this time of the year again. 

Longing for Up North. Svalbard. Iceland. Norway. 

Getting out there just to feel alive.

Wishing I could go today, rather than tomorrow.

 

 

 

 


 Trondheim, Norway 2016. Only a few intense days of photo and film shooting for BASF Master Builders, but enough to install a long term longing.

As the German sky turns grey, my longing for real winter grows. I remember a return flight from Trondheim, Norway. We had been shooting a testimonial story for BASF Master Builders, and the winter sun in Trondheim still had me enchanted.  This was when I stumbled over the reportage on Svalbard / Spitsbergen in the inflight magazine of SAS. Eversince, the longing for the far north returns each time the days get shorter in central Europe. As a surrogate to exploring the Arctic, I hike and campout in the local woods or indulge in photographs of mountains, forest, solitude and snow.
