Ragnar Axelsson SIGNED: Where the World is Melting

SIGNED FIRST EDITION

For over 40 years, Ragnar Axelsson (b. 1958) has photographed people, animals, and landscapes in the most remote regions of Greenland, Iceland, and Siberia. In simple black and white photos, he captures the elementary human experience in nature on the edge of the habitable world. Axelsson highlights the extraordinary relationships between people, animals, and places in the Arctic and their extreme environment – relationships that change in profound and complex ways due to unprecedented climate change.
Following Arctic Heroes (2020), Where the World is Melting is Ragnar Axelsson’s second publication with Kehrer Verlag and includes, among others, the well-known series Faces of the North, Glacier, and Last Days of the Arctic as well as a previously unpublished series.

This book, published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition, offers a first personal look at Ragnar Axelsson’s life’s work.
