Faces of the North / Last Days of the Arctic

Ragnar Axelsson

Eden Court Theatre, Inverness

02 Sep - 30 Sep

RAX has dedicated his career to recording the lives of the subsistence hunters, fishermen and farmers of the circumpolar area on the fringe of the habitable world. He was born in Iceland in 1958 and started his training as a photographer at the age of 16. Since the early 1980s he has travelled to the Arctic, documenting the lives of the Inuit hunters in Northern Canada and Greenland, the farmers and fishermen in the North-Atlantic region and the indigenous people of Northern Scandinavia and Siberia. His studies have appeared in Time magazine, Life, Stern, GEO, Polka, Wanderlust, Geographical and Newsweek.
