Before even opening this book the cover immediately catches your eye. Knowing that the photographer, Alex Hibbert, has endured long distance travelling and extreme conditions just to get into position to take these incredible shots is a testament to his passion for photography. Each photo is detailed with the equipment and method used to capture each image which portrays a willingness to encourage other people to pick up a camera and get clicking. Each photo has its own individual story and draws you into places most people will never venture. My favorite shots are those of the dogs. They transport you back to the origins of the Canine and Human partnership, working together as a team in order to survive.
A highly visual yet peaceful piece of artwork.

This book is a delightful and honest photographic account of life in Greenland. The photographs reveal the traditional and changing way of life for the Greenlandic Inuit, and the harsh reality of polar exploration.
This book is for everyone who is passionate about Greenland, photography or the polar world; or for those who just simply enjoy looking at images.
The book complements Alex's written account of his unsupported polar expedition 'The Long Haul'.
