about

In September / October 2007 I went to the Arctic Ocean to collect oceanographic data. Five weeks on board a Russian polar research ship, at 82 deg north the time zones slipped by quickly, day and night were soon forgotten, the sun would set and rise quite randomly. Optical phenomena like the Aurora Borealis and icebow's, Seals and Polar Bears watching us curiously, the unsettling sound of the ships hull shuddering as we ploughed through ice sheets.
A different world within our own.
The majority of this album was created during this journey.
