Photographs Reveal the Difficult Life of Hunters in Northern Greenland



Photographs Reveal the Difficult Life of Hunters in Northern Greenland. Sled dogs.

In one photo of the healthy head of hair of 70-year-old Greenland native Uunartoq, photographer Ciril Jazbeck has managed to poetically encompass his entire project of Greenland’s last true subsistence hunters. In the image, Uunartoq’s hair, taken from above and behind, is a swirl of greys and blacks and whites—chaotic and unkempt, healthy and wild. As he approaches old age, we can appreciate this unruly head of hair even more for its stubbornness and resistance to change. At the same time, its messy swirls also resemble the unpredictable and oftentimes harsh climate of Greenland itself.
