The remote Greenland
For ten days, photographer Paul Zizka visited the western part of Greenland in search of the northern lights and other breathtaking scenery and walked by what is considered the Iceberg Capital of the World, Ilulissat.
With a population of 4,500 inhabitants, Ilulissat is the third largest settlement in Greenland and also the seat of the municipality of Qaasuitsup. In Greenlanders, the name literally means Ice Mountain, which makes it one of the main attractions of the country.
Enchanted by the region, Zizka admits to returning to Greenland in 2016, but this time will bring fellow photographers to share with them the charms of this magical place. “I’ve always had the fascination of everything that is wild, remote and without great documentary records. That’s why I’m an admirer of the Arctic and I’ve long considered a visit to Greenland, “he says.
