    Hi Roger,
    Many thanks for putting these up. They’re really interesting and insightful. What a way to live and how good is it that Ragnar Axelsson has taken so much time and effort to document this slowly disappearing way of life before it vanishes completely. I was surprised and happy when he said that the hunters grieve for the polar bears they hunt – I wasn’t expecting to hear that.

    • Hi Elaine, thanks for the comment. Ragnar’s work is very sensitive, and he does cover some very tough subjects in some tough places! I can recommend a trip to his website as his pictures are superb. I saw a documentary some time ago on his work and was hooked. Much of it was based around his “Round Up” series http://www.rax.is/Gallery/Round_Up/index.html and I can’t wait till that is released as a book.
