"The history of modern photography is punctuated by the publication of certain books whose narratives are so intimate and dramatic that they initially seem shocking, even intrusive - Larry Clark's drug diary, Tulsa, for example, or Richard Billingham's astonishing images of his gloriously dysfunctional family, Ray's a Laugh. And now Sabine, whose images put you right into their relationship, taking you on their intense, doomed journey."--Sean O'Hagen, The Guardian

Excerpt from Finn Thrane's introduction, "Arctic Incursion," "The young Danish photographer Jacob Aue Sobol brought neither social prejudices nor social criticism with him when he first traveled to eastern Greenland. He was only on a job, making a documentary series from Tinitequilaaq, a godforsaken place whose name, through translation, implies the end of the world: The sound that runs dry at low tide. A fter five weeks Sobol had had enough. He got his black and white shots and went back to Denmark — but could soon see that his portrait of the settlement might be distorted. Four months later he returned to Greenland and resumed photographing. On this second trip he sees that the little community incorporated many more layers and meanings than he could see the first time. This time, Greenland captures him. The hilly landscape lay transparent and glowing and the frozen seawater lures. He makes friends among th e hunters, who take it upon themselves to train him. He becomes a hunter and a fisherman and can, despite the arctic cold, provide his own food. As this new life suddenly pans out for him the pampered motherland to the south shrinks into a pale past, and h e decides to test himself in meeting the basic existential challenges of eastern Greenland. But behind this decision lay the real motivation: falling in love with the Greenlandic girl, Sabine. This circumstance not only changes his arctic project, but also fundamentally affects the language he uses to tell his story"

Just the slightest trace of scuffing to rear board; otherwise Fine.
