A traditional coloured wooden house in Upernavik in northwestern Greenland. / It is a dream come true having a first solo exhibition in NYC at the United Photo Industries Gallery this June.

I am deeply honoured to win the 2018 @visura.co Grant on Climate Change with my latest Arctic photo essay Melting Away! This grant will help expand my vision and support my further work. It is also a dream come true having a first solo exhibition in New York City at the @united_photo gallery this June! The opening is today which I can’t attend. But you are welcome to join me at the artist talk and exhibition tour on 19th June!
Hunter Qajorannguaq Duneq holds a Tarraq - a white screen on wooden skids used for hunting. He arrived to Qaanaaq town all the way from a settlement Qikertat with his dog sled over the sea ice. #Arctic#Greenland#Qaanaaq#seaice#portrait
Greenland, the planet’s biggest island is melting for the first time on its entire surface. Large lakes form, creating a web of thousands of rivers that are slowly filling up the ocean. Unlike Antarctic, its southern bigger counterpart, the Greenlandic ice sheet is the fastest-melting glacial land ice in the world. Just as worrisome as the increasing sea levels, is the darkening of the surface, which will gradually turn Greenland from a cooler to a self-heater, which could together with the melting of permafrost set a fatal rate to the speed of global warming. #Greenland#Arctic#climate-change #melting
Planning new trips and thinking of the Arctic that I love so much. I would like to share some of the newest work from Northern Greenland. Here a subsistence hunter wears a white camouflage and tries to find seals. Stay tuned to see more photos. #Greenland#Qaanaaq#Mamiya#analogue
It is a surreal feeling to have a photo on the @natgeo cover. I finally got a few copies of the Arabic Nat Geo magazines thanks to my kind friend @tasneemalsultan. As a kid I dreamed of becoming a photographer for National Geographic. It has been a privilege to be able to work with them in last years. #Africa#Tech#Cover#NatGeo
