Available for pre-order
First copies will be sent out first week of January  - Update: Books will be sent out January 24.

Where the World is Melting includes, among others, unpublished photographs which Ragnar photographed on Hvísker at the age of ten years old, and the well-known series’ Faces of the North, Glacier, Last Days of the Arctic, and Arctic Heroes. The eminent Icelandic photographer’s themes are the physical and traditional realities of the North.

For over 40 years, Ragnar Axelsson (RAX, b. 1958) has photographed people, animals, and landscapes in the most remote regions of Greenland, Iceland, and Siberia. In simple black and white photos, he captures the elementary human experience in nature on the edge of the habitable world. RAX highlights the extraordinary relationships between people, animals, and places in the Arctic and their extreme environment – relationships that change in profound and complex ways due to unprecedented climate change.

Following Arctic Heroes (2020) Where the World is Melting is Ragnar Axelsson’s second publication with Kehrer Verlag.

Beautiful Book

The book is of extremely high quality with the images being textured compared to the rest of the page which was a nice touch. I was delighted to receive a signed copy!
