"He has trekked through glacial storms, fallen through rifts and awakened on ice that has drifted out to sea. But Ragnar Axelsson just keeps coming back. For many years, he has been traveling to small Inuit villages in Greenland's most remote regions, documenting hunting traditions that are 4,000 years old. His stark photographs capture a place of extremes, bathed in surreal white Arctic light. Cathedral-like icebergs miniaturize man, a hungry sled dog howls and a hunter in a frosted hood meets you with his tired gaze." -The New York Times

Ragnar Axelsson: Last Days of the Arctic

Published by Crymogea
Text by Ragnar Axelsson.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Ragnar Axelsson: Last Days of the Arctic</I>.The Arctic is warming faster than any other region on earth. This rapid climate change has had a devastating effect on the regionís ecology and, consequently, on the Inuit peoples who depend on the Arctic ice for their livelihood and culture. Hailed as one of the greatest documentary photographers of our times, Ragnar Axelsson has been recording the changing face of life in the Arctic for some 30 years. This second edition of The Last Days of the Arctic (which was first published in 2010 and quickly became a rarity) presents 160 of his stunning photographs from Canada and Greenland, with superb duotone printing, captions added for the black-and-white photographs and new images. Axelssonís gorgeous photographs show vast glaciers, sleds gliding across ice and houses buried in snow, but they also depict how the Inuitís changing way of life prefigures the changes that are on their way to the rest of the world.
Ragnar Axelsson was born in†Iceland†in 1958. He has been a staff photographer for Morgunbla,†Icelandís largest newspaper, since 1976. He has been traveling to the Arctic for almost three decades, and his photographs of the continent have won him worldwide recognition, with photographs and picture essays published in Life, National Geographic, Time and elsewhere. The first edition of Last Days of the Arctic, published in†2010, won critical acclaim, with photo features in The†New York Times. Nominated Book of the Year in the (London) Times,†it was described as ďa gift for the eyes, mind and heart.Ē Axelssonís documentary of the same name was aired on PBS (in the stationís Global Voices series) in 2012, also to great acclaim.

Ragnar Axelsson: Last Days of the ArcticReviewing Ragnar Axelsson's remarkable book of photographs of the changing face of life in the Arctic, The New York Times wrote, "He has trekked through glacial storms, fallen through rifts and awakened on ice that has drifted out to sea. But Ragnar Axelsson just keeps coming back. For many years, he has been traveling to small Inuit villages in Greenland's most remote regions, documenting hunting traditions that are 4,000 years old. His stark photographs capture a place of extremes, bathed in surreal white Arctic light. Cathedral-like icebergs miniaturize man, a hungry sled dog howls and a hunter in a frosted hood meets you with his tired gaze." This is one of the most powerful and relevant books of documentary photographs available today, as well as an essential resource for anyone interested in climate change. continue to blog
