“Bright Hours refers to something past – an uncertain place that does not exist, something fragile and indefinite. The project, which started in 2008, is based on journeys to the Arctic North, Kola Peninsula and Nenets Autonomous Okrug in northwest Russia. The book also contains photographs from other places, like Saint Petersburg and the Åland islands.” / Karl Henrik Edlund Bright Hours is Karl Henrik Edlund's first book.
