Photography entrepreneur Cole Roberts has been living in Gävle, Norrland since 2014, but his fascination with Scandinavia began ten years earlier. During a semester abroad in Helsinki, Roberts visited Stockholm and quickly fell in love with Sweden, choosing to return not long after for a one-year Master's degree, this time in Umeå in Sweden's far north.
