Greenland's Northernmost Settlements

After a year and a half of preparation, including learning the language, French photographer Sébastien Tixier travelled to some of Greenland's northernmost settlements to document the effects climate change is having on the country and its inhabitants.

"Greenland is, undeniably, suffering the effects of climate change. Over the last few decades, its society has undergone profound evolution," he says. "As the environment shifts, its people begin to embrace Western lifestyles and modes of consumption […] Supermarkets and cell phones are slowly making their way into Inuit culture, and traditional outfits made from animal hides are now only used in the North for sled journeys."

You can see more of the series, entitled Allanngorpog (which roughly translates as "being transformed") on Sébastien Tixier's online portfolio.
