As an art stu­dent and skier, Swedish pho­tog­ra­pher Al­ric Ljung­hager is al­ways try­ing to push the bound­aries of his craft, both in the class­room and on the moun­tain. “I think it’s cool to go out­side what is nor­mal for pho­tog­ra­phy,” says Ljung­hager. “For me, it’s more about the larger as­pects be­hind the im­age.” Want­ing to cap­ture the move­ment within a mo­ment, Ljung­hager was in­spired by his friend’s fid­get spin­ner and crafted his own de­vice us­ing a cir­cu­lar piece of 3D-printed bio­plas­tic, which helps cre­ate long ex­po­sures. At Ja­pan’s Rusutsu Ski Re­sort, he was able to catch skier Anttu Oikko­nen over the course of a few sec­onds, rather than in just one in­stant. “It’s hard to do, but I feel like I’ve been able to ex­pand mo­ments of time into some­thing longer.”
