Publisher's Description

"Ultima Thule" traditionally denotes the northernmost boundary at the "end of the world"—i.e., a mythical place. For more than 200 years artists, writers, scientists and adventurers have felt the attraction of life at this boundary. In this volume, Danish photographer Henrik Saxgren (born 1953) explores 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 the great sea mammals as did their ancestors for centuries before them. Despite the physically and mentally challenging conditions, Saxgren created images that transform the narrative of the Arctic, its drama and its myths.
