Award winning photojournalist, Ragnar ‘RAX’ Axelsson has been travelling to the Arctic for three decades- enticed by a deep respect for the hunting communities of Canada and Northern Greenland. In Last Days of the Arctic, Axelsson gives us dramatic, jaw-dropping photography with a hard-hitting message.
Axelsson has engrossed himself within the blizzard-battered Arctic environment, allowing him to get up close and personal to communities and landscape that we scarcely get to see.
From dominating icebergs to warming scenes of family life, the harsh reality of life in the Arctic is clearly depicted along with a class of freedom that is hard for even the most adventurous Westerner to comprehend.
Yet, the fragile ecosystem surrounding the Inuit communities is continuously at risk due to climate change and there is nowhere else in the world that is more visibly affected than their diminishing arctic life.
