In September the Arctic ice-cap was 32% below normal with the Northern Sea Route completely free of ice, despite previous scientific claims that it would take 50-100 years to melt. Quite simply the Arctic is disapearing every second of every day, so it is about time we celebrated it, isn’t it? Inspired by this diminishing landscape Proud Chelsea presents Last Days of the Arctic: a photographic portrait of a disappearing landscape and the people who inhabit it, by photojournalist Ragnar Axelsson. This is a rare glimpse into the world of the Inuit people as Axelsson presents us with an insight into the life of Greenlandic hunters in one of the most remote regions of the world. The Last Days of the Arctic at Proud Chelsea runs from 26th January to 11th March 2012.
