Throughout the last two decades the photographer Carsten has travelled to the most remote areas of Greenland, and his images have been used in a variety of Greenlandic and international media. Carsten has a rare ability to capture the essence of Arctic animals and birds with his camera, and appears as an excellent ambassador for the Arctic natural and cultural values.
Carsten Egevang has recently published two books on Greenland. In both GREENLAND – Land of Animal and Man (2011) and LIFE AT THE EDGE (2012) he combines photography of high international standards, biological knowledge and insight of the Inuit culture. Through photos and text the reader gets a rare insight in to the unique relationship between animals and humans within one of the harshest environments on earth.
Carsten Egevang has won several accolades in international wildlife photography contests and his iconic image “Little auks, big fiord” won the category “wild places” in the prestigious “The Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year” in 2009.
