In 1991 the Swiss photographer Marco Paoluzzo discovered Iceland, its dramatic light conditions and impressive sceneries. Mesmerized by the mysterious north, he would gradually expand his travels to include Norway, the Faroe Islands and even Greenland. That triggered his idea to combine the isles and countries in the 60th parallel north into a photo collection. Therefore “Terra Borealis” contains photographs that were taken on Iceland, the Faroe Islands, the Shetlands, Norway, Greenland and Svalbard. The book offers an enchanting and magical journey in black-and-white.
