“Nordkapp – a poetic snow-covered landscape which seems like a gateway to the wide world. If you take a closer look, though, it tells a different kind of story …” photographer ANKE LUCKMANN lets us know about her personal work, which was created on one of her many journeys.
Nordkapp, or North Cape, is a Norwegian municipality in the county of Troms og Finnmark. The larger part of the municipality is located on the island of Magerøya while the smaller part is on the Norwegian mainland, with which Magerøya has been connected by the 6,875m North Cape Tunnel since 1999. At one of the northern tips of Magerøya lies what is referred to as The North Cape, a slate plateau rising steeply out of the Arctic Ocean which is often incorrectly referred to as the northernmost point of Europe.
And even though the part about the northernmost point may not be entirely true – it still attracts travelers from all over the world year after year to Nordkapp.
