Long read: Shaped by winter
“Nordic light is unique; only a few percent of the Earth’s population live in these kind of light conditions. Little more than 100 years ago, darkness after sunset with no moon was a reality for most people – light was special,” states The Nordic Museum in Stockholm. The museum explores what it means to live in a part of the world that has limited daylight during winter, and almost endless daylight during summer.
