In 1991 the Swiss photographer Marco Paoluzzo discovered Iceland, its dramatic light conditions and impressive sceneries. Mesmerised by the mysterious north, he would gradually expand his travels to include Norway, the Faroe Islands and even Greenland. That triggered his idea to combine the isles and countries in the 60th parallel north into a photo collection. "Terra Borealis" contains photographs that were taken on Iceland, the Faroe Islands, the Shetlands, Norway, Greenland and Svalbard. The book offers an enchanting and magical journey in black-and-white.
Marco Paoluzzo, born in Biel, Switzerland, in 1949, studied at the Vevey Photography School. In 1981, he returned to his hometown, where he worked in advertising and industry. His career veered towards travel photography following the appearance of his first book, 'Iceland'. His photographs have been exhibited in many shows and are part of collections of several museums in Switzerland and abroad. He has published 12 books of photography. Pierre Rouyer, former editor in chief of the Swiss magazine 'Animan', regularly publishes reports with main focus on nature and ecology.
