Being fascinated by dog-mushing, we have been following sled dog races in Alaska and Norway in order to create short portraits and photography documentation. Simultaneously, we have been running our own visual campaign on social media for years in order to support this bond-based, life-affirming sport.
As for now, most of our film material comes from the 2016 and 2017 Iditarod Sled Dog Race in Alaska. In our short films we focus on the bond between dogs and musher, the trust that needed from both sides, and the intimate moments of crossing and living in No-Man's Land.
Through still image documentation we wish to provide a keyhole to observe the world of long-distance mushing. We aim to discover and capture intimate gestures that best show the relationships within a team, and moments that best reflect the atmosphere.
The stills are from the 2018 Femundløpet and Finnmarksløpet races in Norway.
