The Race Photo by Carsten Egevang.
'Ice Cold Harvest' is a new series of photos by Greenland photographer, Carsten Egevang. His beautiful and dramatic photos convey moments from traditional hunting and fishing trips in the surroundings of Ilulissat in Western Greenland. These beautiful dogs are an integral part of the hunt, both in terms of transport but also companionship. Here is the race.
Carsten Egevang followed local fishermen deep into the World Heritage Ilulissat Ice Fjord. Motor driven transportation is not permitted in the area, so the trip was travelled by dogsled. His goal is to photograph unusual angles and unconventional cuts, with high contrast images that show not only the beauty of the surroundings but also the tough conditions and harsh lifestyle that Arctic weather brings.
Carsten Egevang is awarded in several international photo competitions, including as category winner in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year - the highest position a Dane yet received the prestigious competition. I am also awarded "Danish Nature Photographer” in 2011 and receiver of the Greenland Government "Environment and Nature Prize" in 2012.
"Photographs in black and white represents for me something timeless - a moment of documentation, often at first glance can be difficult to set a date on. At the same time, they can express feelings to a degree that is simply not possible if the same image was in color. The black and white photo tradition represents purity along with the gray tones between these extremes, forcing the viewer to concentrate on the subject and the composition of the picture, and not be bewildered with "cheap tools" like the glorious red colors of a sunset. Black and white photos express both something raw and gritty - something simple and honest!" - Carsten Egevang
