One week as a greenlandic hunterUnique photos from Thule in North West Greenland by photographer Jonas Beyer Petersen

One week as a greenlandic hunter- 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, Jonas Beyer Petersen tells. 

One week as a greenlandic hunter- The environment is harsh and the purpose honourable; to provide food for both the families of the hunters and even their dog packs.

One week 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. 

One week as a greenlandic hunter- 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.

One week as a greenlandic hunter- 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.
