The Adventure Handbook photo comp

Goodspace Gallery, Sydney & RVCA Gallery, Melbourne

29-05-16 until 21-08-16

The Australian website and magazine 'The Adventure Handbook' set up an international photo competition, and one of my pictures I took on a trip to Norway (see above) made it to the final round. That also meant that my photo was included in their Sydney and Melbourne exhibitions. To read more about the photo comp, see what the jury people from VICE wrote about it (they also featured my photo on their TCP website).


About the picture: my friend Lex Boon and I once traveled to Norway to find Trygve, a guy Lex was making a story about. We found him on the shortest day of the year, when he was swimming in a frozen ice lake. We extensively interviewed the bearded Norseman about his frozen, dead grandpa - Trygve believes that if you keep a corpse cold enough, it will at some point in time be possible to resuscitate it. He also thinks that ice baths are healthy for anyone who is still alive. That’s why he went for a swim in the middle of the harsh winter.
