Keepers of the Ocean: Inuuteq Storch's Intimate Portrayal of West Greenland
Inuuteq Storch's Keepers of the Ocean is a personal exploration of intimacy with and within the overwhelming nature of west Greenland. The book, published by Disco Bay, portrays the close community of Storch’s hometown Sisimiut photographed over the past three years.
Everyday images of friends, family, food and interiors form part of the subject matter combined with Storch’s own intervention and experimentation. Unstaged yet absorbing, intimate and vulnerable. His intuitive narrative style draws the viewer into the image, giving us the feeling of being present ourselves. A rare sight when it comes to portrayals of Greenland – exceptional, meaty and sorely needed.
