I do long distances hikes in remote areas (Swedish Lapland for this project) and am photographing my interaction with the landscape in which I am a transient guest. I tell the story of what it can mean to walk alone for weeks while the act of walking helps me focus on the more poetical and emotional aspects of the journey. The perception of my surroundings changes throughout a hike, which is both a physical as well as a mental journey; at different stages, different elements of the landscape are important to me. Being my sole company for weeks with the exception of a few chance encounters with like-minded people, forces me to deal with and come to terms with myself.
