This is What I Saw After Spending a Month Photographing In Greenland
I spent one month among three villages that were about ten miles apart from each other, but sometimes required three hours to get to, amazingly. The largest of these was Narsarsuaq, population 140.
Since there are no roads in Greenland, I traveled by boat to get to them.
I worked mostly at night but I also photographed during the early morning, late afternoons and twilight. Daylight in mid-August lasted until about 9:30; one month later, sun set by 7pm–a quick transition. But since this was nearly the most southern part, it was hardly as extreme as one or two thousand miles north up the icesheet.
The south had about two dozen sheep farms, which represents the whole of Greenland’s nascent farming, except for a few local vegetables grown during two months of summer.
