“It started when I began walking to work in Skellefteå. I was overweight and needed the exercise. On route were things that were nicely illuminated. I started taking photos of the lights, to and from work. Then I just carried on. Saw light constellations in Umeå when visiting my parents, when walking across half the town to celebrate Christmas with my kids at my ex-wife’s, went to see my son in Nordmaling and my partner’s sister and her family in Hägersten. And so on.
