6 months in the fridge: Travels through Northern Europe, By Michael Königshofer.
Exciting contrasts of people and nature in Norway, Sweden, Scotland, Iceland and Greenland.
This authentic illustrated book shows Scandinavia fans completely new sides of their dream destinations and arouses their curiosity about the North.
What does winter look like in the far north? The cliché says: cold and dark like in a refrigerator - and yet that is exactly when photographer Michael Königshofer is drawn towards the Arctic Circle!
These are far more than just breathtakingly archaic landscape photos with a fascinating light atmosphere that the Scandinavia-savvy Austrian captures with his camera: This 208 page book of 120 colour photographs documents the contrast of untouched nature and the unmistakable traces that people leave behind. How their lives are shaped in this harsh, unforgiving environment is told in exciting encounters - from the traditional ivory carver in Greenland to the ice surfer at the North Cape.
Michael Königshofer is an Austrian photographer and designer who has been passionate about Northern Europe all his life. After countless journeys to the countries of Scandinavia (especially in winter), his debut book "6 Months in the Fridge" was produced. He lives and works in Graz.
