It takes something truly special to live life as a Greenlandic hunter. For one week, I was invited out multiple times with two hunters, Thomas and Marcus, hunting seals.
The environment is harsh and the purpose honourable; to provide food for both the families of the hunters and even their dog packs.
A quick glimpse as a greenlandic hunter
This was an amazing experience, living a few days in the life of the hunters. My photo collection is but a glimpse of it, barely doing it justice.
It would be easy to think that they hunt for sport, but in reality, it’s quite the opposite. The entire animal is used, and it’s done in a respectful and sustainable manner.
To emphasize the aesthetic of both the lives of the hunters and the greatness of nature, I have chosen to use black and white photos, so the focus is on the people and the animals in this desert of ice, Jonas Beyer Petersen ends.
