To celebrate the fact I’ve got my summer pretty much sorted, it’s a time for a throwback. So here are photos from last summer’s Midnight Sun Film Festival. It was my second year photographing the festival, and this year’s going to be the third. After that I’ll spend the rest of the summer photographing for Keskisuomalainen newspaper.

The Midnight Sun Film Festival is a fascinating event, it’s non-competitive and held in June in Sodankylä (population 8 500) in the heart of Finnish Lapland, some 120 kilometres above the Arctic Circle, where the sun doesn’t set at all in the summertime. Last summer’s guests included film directors Carlos Saura, Bertrand Bonello and Per Fly as well as actors Hanna Schygulla and Charlotte Fich.

Photos from 2016 are here.
