‘There is this dream that has followed me for quite some time now. It is a dream so warm and gentle that I wish for it to never end. There, I see my family and friends. I see my hometown more beautiful than ever before. And then there is the light. The sunlight reflecting and sparkling over the pure white blanket that covers the ground. So bright and radiating that the light ends up taking over the dream.’
Growing up in a Nordic country, I used to take it for granted that snow would cover the ground every winter, yet already during my short-lived life, the world and the climate have undergone a drastic change. This story follows a day where the precious memories of winters in my childhood come back to me in my dream—as if my mind was trying to compensate for the absence of snow in reality.
Through photography, writing, and music, I try to process my longing for a time but also a part of my identity that is now becoming out of reach. The project explores how the changing climate and the new kind of uncertainty surrounding the winter months are causing complex emotional responses.
