Linn Phyllis Seeger studied photography and book arts at both Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany, and Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany. Apart from her own artistic work she is part of the curatorial team of the PhotoBookMuseum based in Cologne, Germany. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe, China, and the US.
Linn Phyllis Seeger's photographic work examines the correlation and interplay of man and place, particularly reflecting about geographical utopias, modern myths, and memory, treating landscapes, faces and the mundane as coequal combatants against forgetting. Alienation, delocalisation, and the human need to create places that exceed real living environments are ubiquitous motifs in her work.
Six Days North is an investigation of the geographical end of the world, firstly described in ancient times by Greek navigator Pytheas. According to ancient literature, Pytheas found this place after leaving Great Britain and sailing north for six days. Yet neither his original travelogue nor the actual place could ever been located - until now.
