When I grew up in Denmark the Arctic was my dream. The landscapes with their magic lights, and the fauna and the indigenous peoples were so tantalizing that I thought I would become an Arctic photographer. But instead the damp and dark environments of the world’s rainforests took over. It had to last, with some few visits to Greenland and Alaska, until the summer 2014 before I gave it a serious photographic attempt for the ongoing "Wild Nordic" photo-project. Here are the results from the high Arctic archipelago of Svalbard.
