Heart of a Seal

Once the photographer saw the first glimpses of the mountain that Uummannaq, Greenland, an island town off the country’s western coast, centers around, he was instantly drawn to the beauty and rawness of this remote place. The Arctic island has in the past 50 years quickly developed itself and is going from a traditional community of fishermen and hunters to a modern society.
Lukas wanted to understand and document how life looks and feels like in a community with such a harsh climate and long traditions.For countless generations, the Inuit who reside here have relied on their natural surroundings to survive. This project aims at showing how the Inuit culture intersects with the town’s present day conditions and to pose the question of how long the area’s traditions will resist the worsening of climate change?
