ARTIST SERIES

The artist writes: “I show portraits of meltwater rivers that are increasingly appearing on the ice due to global warming. These were produced on two expeditions during which I traveled 450 km on foot in the melt zone of the Greenland Inland Ice with a companion. I accompanied and documented the work of climate researchers collecting data on climate changes and the layers of ice that are melting away on the Greenland Inland Ice with my large format camera. I was also able to visit the only place in Greenland where tourists can encounter the Inland Ice and find traces of climate change. This series depicts how nature reacts causally to climate change and how these developments are confronted by humans.”
