A herd of reindeer is moved onto a boat near Alta, Norway. Because of food shortages, the reindeer are often transported to nearby islands that have more food, according to photographer Gianmarco Maraviglia. Maraviglia traveled with the Reindeer Police, a unit that patrols Norway's northernmost counties.

Maraviglia described the counties of Finnmark and Troms as a white expanse in every direction -- vast and open like the Sahara, but covered in snow.

The Reindeer Police teams are made up of two officers who set out on weeklong missions. Maraviglia said that because the area is so large, the team can go a day or two without seeing another person.
