I went to Gothenburg in January for my studies in photography and stayed until the beginning of July. It was cold for the better part of these almost six months. There surely were some sunny days when everyone seemed to just soak up the sun. I heard, though, that there had not been a colder spring in Sweden for many years. I still had a fantastic time in this beautiful city that somehow just feels like a small-town to me – not least because I met a bunch of wonderful people. These are some snapshots I took within the first week.
