About this image

Whilst working in Northern Greenland on a photographic project, I visited an orphanage where the children are encouraged to learn about the traditional ways of the hunters and fishermen.   One evening, the children were taken on a special outing to the frozen sea, where a screening of the Greenlandic-language film, ‘Inuk’, was projected onto an iceberg.  This child, who was wrapped up warmly in traditional seal skin clothing, was mesmerised by the movie.
