Before starting university in Sweden I wanted to travel the world with my camera. After four moths of travelling through Indonesia and Australia I finally went to my dream destination New Zealand in May 2013.
I rented a van in which I could sleep and cook food in and travelled across the whole country. The whole trip took about a month and I met some wonderful travellers, photographers and locals.
Although driving alone for five hours a day, sleeping in a van without heating in below zero degrees and fighting with my greatest enemy: battery life for the gear, the trip was still the most amazing thing I've ever done.
With this film I want to show the beauty of New Zealand's nature, not the things created by someone, but the plain nature.
This film is my dream of New Zealand.
