A photographer who paints with light

North of the Arctic Circle in Finland, there is a period of about 50 days when the sun never rises above the horizon, known as the Polar Night.

Artist and photographer Hannu Huhtamo uses this period of darkness to paint with light.  He makes his strange and haunting works of art by making a long-exposure photograph of a moving bright light source against a dim background.
