Cold Coast II: The Longest Day

The current landscape of Svalbard resembles a landscape from the end of the last Ice Age. It's a place to live nor die. Women are not allowed to give birth, old people are not allowed to die; they are sent back to the mainland of Norway.

Still, human beings have always tried to build a life here, seeking confrontation with nature, yearning for freedom from society. The predominantly grey, stoney landscape is full of traces of humanity, marked by color. Fading in and out with the nature.

The photos were made in the summer, when the sun doesn't set on Svalbard: The longest day. Cold Coast is the literal translation of the name Svalbard.
