Greenland’s Beautiful Icy Landscapes


For this beautifully tragic series titled Above Zero, photographer Olaf Otto Becker daringly trekked through approximately 2,500 miles of Greenland’s western coastline over a year one period. Second only to Antarctica, Greenland has the largest inland ice surfaces in the world. Armed with his cumbersome, large format camera, Becker strenuously walked amongst glacial crevasses and melting ice, determined to get these eye-opening shots.

As Amador Gallery states, “His photo studies draw out the overwhelming beauty of this icy landscape, while documenting their present fragility: dust and rust in the air form black, crusty deposits, which, in conjunction with global warming, accelerate the melting of the ice sheets–with what will probably be inevitable, catastrophic results. Becker warns that even in these uninhabited regions, human actions can have fatal consequences.”
