Have you ever marveled at one of these? In Norwegian, værgard describes the meteorological curiosity of snow rings. At a radius of approximately 22° around the sun or moon, light is refracted in millions of hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere. This happens either in high and cold cirrus or cirrostratus clouds (at around 5-10 km above the earth’s surface) or, during very cold weather, drifting in the air at low levels. In that case they are called diamond dust.
Light is essential to life …and photography. Unanswered questions, life-altering encounters and innumerable miles of covered ground between Hong Kong and the Lofoten Islands are the source of these pictures. Göteborg, being the first place this until-then rootless human called home, still keeps its rightful place as a protagonist. What started in 2012 as a pile of odd sketches and observations along the west coast of Sweden has slowly but consistently evolved into a collection of windows that hold impressions from a much wider geographical spectrum.
