Olaf Otto Becker - Ilulissat : sculptures of change, Greenland 2003-2017 by Olaf Otto Becker( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since his first visit in 2003, photographer Olaf Otto Becker has been drawn to the Arctic. Starting from Ilulissat, one of the oldest settlements in West Greenland, Becker goes with his boat and his camera over and over again to the ice sea to meet icebergs. Like floating sculptures, the white giants rise out of the water, in which their manifold forms are reflected majestically. In its quiet majesty, fragility always resonates, as he himself points out: "For me, icebergs are wonderful and transient sculptures created out of themselves, but at the same time natural monuments and memorials that stand for the ongoing process of change in the climate which we are now significantly influencing people for the first time in the history of our planet

Up here : the North at the center of the world( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The North is a complex place that is beautiful, moody, and anything but untouched. The Arctic, part of the international North that is pivotal to the world because of climate change, is no longer a frontier of the past. The same interest in the North that preoccupied artists and explorers of the Romantic era has returned greater than ever, but rather than merely depicting its grandeur, today's artists, scientists, and explorers question the future of the landscape. Up Here connects art, science, and environment at a time when unprecedented climate change requires unprecedented innovation. The contributors explore the ideas of "wilderness" and "remoteness," the lessons to be learned from cold places and indigenous knowledge, and how the Arctic is a signal for global change
