The photographer Torbjørn Jakobsson at Vesterbottens Kurieren in Umeå has followed a young family of reindeer herders for a full year. Through the slaughter of animals in the autumn, moving of the herd across land in winter and the branding of new calves come spring, we are given a unique insight into a culture and lifestyle that few are familiar with.
