Life at the northern end of the world: a unique piece of photojournalism in a photobook you won't forget

Ultima Thule Summary

Ultima Thule by Henrik Saxgren

Historically, Ultima Thule has been a concept for `the northernmost boundary with the end of the world', a mythical place. For more than 200 years artists, writers, scientists and adventurers have felt the attraction of life on this boundary. In this succession, Danish photographer Henrik Saxgren (* 1953 in Randers) locates his work which explores the life in Arctic Greenland. Spread over six journeys, he spent more than six months in the Thule region. His photographs document the life of what may be the last generation of hunters on the sea ice of Thule, hunting and catching the great (sea) mammals, like their ancestors for centuries before them. Despite of the physically and mentally challenging conditions, Saxgren continued his work and created new pictures for which he even sometimes had to overcome his own fear: pictures that can supplement the narrative of the Arctic, its drama, its myths.
