- Exceptionally presented in an oversized format with silver hot foil stamping, and a soft white fabric cover for a unique haptic experience – reflecting the snow and the vast icy landscapes of Greenland
- Foreword by a well-known personality, stressing the aspect of nature and sustainability
- One of very few illustrated books about Greenland showing a great variety of Greenland’s facets in high-quality photography: impressive close-ups of polar bears, aerial shots of beautiful structures created by land, water and ice, authentic portraits of natives and their living conditions
Greenland is larger than Germany, France, Spain, Sweden and Great Britain combined. And yet we know very little about this huge island with its low population density.
In Greenland, Fokion Zissiadis, whose first illustrated book Iceland was published by teNeues in 2015, shows us that it really is worth taking a closer look.
We see formations of rock, water, snow and ice, which in combination with the play of light and shadow unfold an incomparable beauty. Animals on land, water and in the air appear sometimes in long shots and sometimes in breathtaking close-ups. Fokion Zissiadis also captures the inhabitants and their settlements.
The high-quality photographs, including many spectacular aerial shots taken from helicopters, appear in sizes up to 83 cm in width.
The images are accompanied by a very personal interview in which Fokion Zissiadis describes how and why Greenland became the subject of his work. But also that he approached the undertaking a bit too lightly. He draws our attention to the indigenous Inuit population but also the dangers to Greenland’s nature.
With its opulent décor, Greenland is a wonderful object to rediscover the slowness and beauty of the book world, to linger quietly over individual images or to open the book decoratively on the coffee table.
