Above the Arctic circle, there is a different Sweden, a different country, a different lifestyle. My outdoor career started in the northern Swedish mountains of Abisko and Sarek. I stayed up there for three winters, working as a guide and a musher in the Kiruna area. Up north, life revolves around the sun, around its absence or its presence. A number of these pictures were published by Gestalten in the book 'the Great Wide Open'.
