Young danish photographer Jacob Aue Sobol traveled to the small settlement Tiniteqilaaq on Greenland’s east coast to document the lives of the 158 people of this small village.
After five weeks he went back to Denmark only to return four months later and stayed for two years, because he met Sabine. She was 19, he was 23 and they fell in love. He started to learn the local language and settles and engaged himself in the social life of the locals.
“I’m in love. Sabine is 19 and I’m 23. I’ve decided to stay in Tiniteqilaaq. I want to be a hunter. Shoot seals and catch fish. Learn the language. I’ve stopped taking photographs.”
This is a great lesson of dedication..
