Jenny Berg Trip to the bear mountains 2015


Trip to the bear mountains 2014-2015

In Longyearbyen, Svalbard, there is a rule that you mustn’t leave the village unarmed, because of the many polar bears that live in the area. The border between civilized society and wilderness seems sharp. I was interested in if and how this border could be sensed. I travelled to Svalbard twice, first in the autumn of 2014 just as the polar nights began, and secondly in spring 2015.
