Lost in the immensity of Spitsbergen, in Svalbard, we start our skiing expedition traverse, camping on the tops of the glaciers for a few days, exploring the untouched and moody weather swings. Not only the landscape was amazing, but I learned incredible skills and so much more about these giants of ice. It was truly an experience to learn on the terrain; capturing this unforgettable moment, whilst guaranteeing safety on the glacier and planning polar bear guard schedules for the bright sunny night. The expedition made us travel through the clouds, between the valleys, into the unknown.

Originally from France, Virgil was born on September 26th 1988 He grew up in a small town between Lyon and Switzerland, and left France in may 2011 to explore the world, and discover his passions for the great outdoors and photography. The photos you find in his gallery are the result of thousands of hours spent outside under snowstorm, strong winds, heavy heat, freezing cold temperatures, long drives, great hikes, early mornings, late evenings, and tremendous amount of time spent waiting and facing nature without knowing what will come. That's what keeps him in love with Landscape and Night.
