HENRIK SAXGREN

ULTIMA THULE

Historically, Ultima Thule has been a concept for “the northernmost boundary with the end of the world”, a mythical place. Spread over six journeys, Danish photographer Henrik Saxgren spent more than six months in the Thule region, in Arctic Greeland. His photographs document the life  of what may be the last generation of hunters on the sea ice of Thule, hunting and catching the great sea mammals.
