Publisher's description

Finally available the revised and updated edition of Faces of the North — Small edition (2004) features a selection of the iconic images that have established Ragnar Axelsson (RAX) as one of the leading photographers of our time. The result of over 30 years documenting the lives of hunters, fishermen, and farmers in the North, this collection is a rare testament to the people across Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland whose worlds and ways of life have now all but disappeared.  

With the original foreword by Mary Ellen Mark.

Raised on an isolated farm in southern Iceland, Ragnar Axelsson (born 1958) became captivated early on by the brutal beauty of the North Atlantic and the delicate interactions between its inhabitants and their environment. Born of that fascination, Faces of the North, first published in 2004, established Axelsson as one of the leading documentary photographers of our time. Long out of print, Faces of the North is now republished. In the 2004 edition of Faces of the North, Axelsson collected the images of farmers, hunters, and fishermen in the Arctic and the Atlantic that he became best known for.
