Greenland

Meet the Locals

In yesterdays post I mentioned the Inuit people, the locals, the people of Greenland. Friendly and charming folk who live in a very diverse climate, 6 months of hot dry windy summer and then 6 months of dark freezing windy winter takes the toll on them. Their tough bony hands and leathery tanned faces tell a story of these harsh conditions, illustrated by these teenagers waiting to catch a bus to their prom night.

    Great black and white image, like the dynamic between the 4 men looking away and the single face turned to the camera.
