Hannu Huhtamo is a light painting artist/photographer from Finland. Where others would only find misery in the sun barely rising above the horizon for nearly 50 days, Hannu sees opportunity and beauty.

Crafting his ideas with pre-visualization techniques, even sometimes jotting them on paper, Hannu heads out to the darkest places to sculpt his images. Using a wide array of lighting tools and long exposure images the light paintings emerge from the dark.
