Edlund Karl Henrik . Bright Hours - signed copy

’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 was born in 1987 in Helsinki, Finland.

In 2008 he moved to Northern Norway to study photography in Lofoten folkehøgskole, where he started the photo project "Bright Hours" which was recognized with the Scanpix Scolarship in 2010. He graduated from Nordens Fotoskola, Biskops-Arnö, Sweden in 2013. The same year he was granted with a six-month Artist-In-Residence scholarship in St Petersburg, Russia. Between 2013 and 2014 he participated in the one-year workshop Atelier Smedsby by JH Engström and Margot Wallard. 

He now lives and works in Åland, Finland.
