LOOK: The North Pole Through the Eyes of a Filipino Photographer

When I was a kid I only knew North Pole as where Santa Claus lived, and the revelation that came after I learned that 1. Santa Claus is not real (sorry, kids), and 2. that the North Pole is an actual place was pretty mind blowing.

But how many of us has been there, really? Not a lot, that’s for sure. But someone who actually has is renowned Filipino landscape photographer Edwin Martinez, and he’s shared with us the photographs he took of his trip there. Take note that Edwin only took the photos with a mobile phone, which only proves that talent supersedes equipment.

In his original Facebook post, he wrote:

A photographic journey by a Filipino outdoor photographer, capturing scenes and places from 75º to 81º North using the Huawei P9 Plus, Svalbard is one of the farthest and remotest place on the planet. Probably 0.0000005% of the planet’s population have seen these places. Let me show you the images captured by this wonderful smartphone. All photos were taken using the manual controls to get the raw format. Minimal processing, mostly global and resized, sharpened for web. #HuwaeiP9PlusPh #OO #EdwinMartinezPhotography

Take a look at the gorgeous photos:
