The White Line
Believe in human nature. We are one more animal inhabiting the earth, only one more in the natural cycle of life. The places that man has been unable to conquer and shape to his taste are, paradoxically, those where we can find freedom and rediscover our identity. In this regard, the Arctic is one of the most inaccessible places and one where we can return to the roots of human nature. The White Line project spans a period of 2016 to 2019 in the Arctic Circle, specifically in the regions of Qaanaaq and Kulusuk in Greenland, the Yamal Peninsula in Siberia (Russia), and in Norwegian and Finnish Lapland.
