says Pier Cassotti, the Italian photographer who pursued this multimedia project. For more information please visit his website, especially the Arctic Spleen Project.
I learned about the project via Burn, which is quite a good introdruction to his work.
What can I say - one of the most expressive and impressive documentary photography I encountered this year.
To me what makes documentary photography good is that it shows respect for the subject, respect for the people. And that it interests me in things I haven't been interested in before.
Right now I am wondering how Greenland's decision to lift the uranium and rare earths mining ban (see here for example) will influence the life of the people we see in Pier's photographs.
I can't remember thinking that much about Greenland before.
BTW: Delivery was fast - yes, the photo shows my copy's front cover ;-) - and the book is wonderful and high quality - Paper: Munken Lynx 150gr, Printing: Duotone Offset.
