Four miniatures of the series Barentsburg and Pyramid give an insight into the work of Christian Houge in these two former Soviet mining towns. Two large format photographs are issued from the series Arctic Technology.
Sunday morning, Christian Houge was invited to 'café-rencontre' which was part of the VIP program, along with Danish photographer Carsten Ingemann and Polish photographer Tomasz Wysocki.
