Are you Inuit? My journey to North (Greenland, Canadian Arctic)

“Are you Inuit??”
When I arrived Greenlandic island – Kitsisarssuit (79 population), one indigenous people approached me without any hesitate and asked. Although my answer made him disappointed, we started a lovely conversation and learn each other culture and lifestyle.

You can say that the Inuit have a greatness life in the world. The indescribable landscapes with eat-all-you-can wild foods always impress me to make a decision to live in Greenland. However, rapidly European modernization and long, darkness winter is really a serious matter to threat the traditional culture and normal living condition. As one Inuit told me:
“Here is our home, here is my life”

The deep connectedness relationship between Inuit and their landscape truly inspired me. And I start to think that Where my natural environment in Hong Kong is?

你是因紐特人嗎?我的北極地區(格陵蘭島,加拿大北極地區)

“你是因紐特人嗎?”
當我到達格陵蘭島 – Kitsisarssuit(79居民),一位當地人走近我並沒有任何猶豫地問。雖然答案讓他失望了,但我們開始了一段可貴的交談,了解對方的文化和生活方式。

你可以說,因紐特人生活在世界上最令人羨慕的土地上。難以形容的風景和無盡在野生食物總是打動我做出決定留住在格陵蘭。但是,歐洲迅速的現代化和長期黑暗的冬天是一個嚴重的問題威脅到傳統文化和正常生活。一位因紐特人告訴我:
“這裡是我們的家,這裡是我的生命”

因紐特人跟大自然的深緊的關係,讓我反思到小時候作伴成長的香港大自然又跑到哪?

This is my 14th time I encounter the crazy northern light. Although shooting the pic on board is very difficult, I still can capture some idea about the dance of light by my camera. Very impressive. And, tell me that although my job on board is super demanding, some private moment on board encourage me a lots.
