The clear light of Svalbard, Spitsbergen

Svalbard (Spitsbergen) is an island near the North Pole. There is no air pollution. The light is very clear. The sun stays until 23 of August 24 hours. The sun is low above the horizon, which means long shadows and a sculpted landscape.
My work with daylight is inspired by the light of nature; the beautiful light makes one aware of light as part of the universe.
