Greenland is the world’s largest island – excluding the island-continent of Australia. The majority of the island – well over 1,000 miles from North to South, is covered in ice. Human settlements are confined to the coast. I was lucky enough to be in Greenland in September 2008, when, unusually, the weather was beautiful – the sky clear blue, the temperature just like a British early summer. I have already published, on March 30th this year, some of my photographs of the icebergs and ice floes in the Ice Fiord. See: ‘Ancient Ice’ . The views were dramatic, but the place which captivated me most was the small town of Nanortalik on the South-West coast of the country. It is an isolated community, without road connection to other settlements or to the Greenland capital of Nuuk. Over the next three weeks I shall publish, on Thursdays, some of the photographs which I took in and around NANORTALIK . . .
