About the Book
A collection of photographs from an expedition a friend and I embarked on in March 2011. This large format hardback book describes our travels during a week of exploring the island of Spitsbergen in the upper Arctic wastes.
Photographs, text and design by Reuben Wu.
Epilogue written by Regina Peldszus.
Reuben Wu was born in 1975 and grew up in North West England. He graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 1997 and later studied at Liverpool University before becoming an industrial designer. Aside from his photography, he is a producer, musician and DJ with synth-pop group Ladytron. With an amateur career spanning over a decade during which he has extensively documented locations visited on tour with the band, Svalbard is his first dedicated publication.
