A Postcard from the North - Exploring Nature and People in Greenland
"My work would also serve as a document of a community and culture that could well be dissolved by the march of time and outside influences." Sebastian Copeland
WATCH THE VIDEO ABOUT THE INUGHUIT COMMUNITY
On one of his latest expeditions, Sebastian Copeland visited and talked to the small Inughuit community, of Qeqertat, in northern Greenland, with only 12 people.
This small community of people, historically known as “Arctic Highlanders” or "Polar Eskimos”, is the northernmost group of Inuit in the world. Despite their remote location, they face a threat to their way of life due to climate change and industrial influences.
Copeland's mission was to document this unique culture and capture the beauty and fragility of nature surrounding them. Through his lens, he witnessed first-hand how powerful yet delicate our planet can be - a reminder that we must do everything possible to preserve it for future generations.
During several weeks of his expedition, spent in the extreme conditions of the polar North, Sebastian captured awe-inspiring shots that will serve as a testament to what once was for the history books. Watch his impressive video about his polar journey. Impressive!
