Paolo Verzone

Arctic Zero


For the past few years Verzone has been documenting the inhabitants of one of the world’s norther-most communities, Ny-Ålesund. This place is also a center for international Arctic research and environmental monitoring where a number of countries run their own national research stations. Close-by Longyearbyen is the administrative center of Svalbard, and a tiny Norwegian metropolis, with a mining history, that hosts 2,100 residents from almost 50 different countries.

Paolo Verzone (1967, Turin, Italy) is based between Italy and Spain, has been a member of Agence VU since 2003.
