TUNU: EAST GREENLAND

It is widely assumed that the ancestors of modern Tunu Kalaallit (Eastern Greenlandic Inuit) originated from the Russian Far East a few thousand years ago, travelling across vast stretches of North American Arctic in a game of survival for centuries. East Greenland lies at the extreme end of the Kalaallit people's territory. It is a land covered in craggy mountains, deep fjords and calving glaciers casting ice bergs into the sea. Sparsely populated, the Tunu settlements of the East maintain old hunting and fishing traditions while incorporating elements of Danish convenience. This photography project looks at East Greenland: the land, the sea, and the people.
