These photos by Reuben Wu reflect the desolate environment of the Arctic Circle where this photographer captures the uninhabited atmosphere.
There is no movement or action within the photos but the beauty of such a still, static environment is breathtaking. The use of the lighting and the snowy ground cover create such stunning shots. One photo in particular focuses on the night sky with the lights of the Aurora Borealis shining down on the white lands.
Looking at this series, there is a sense of loneliness one may feel as abandoned buildings, snow-covered hillsides and bare skies can look almost haunted at first glance.
Although the emptiness is apparent, there is beauty in this where Wu does his best in order to show this within his photographs.
