Arctic: the last frontier

The exhibition curated by Denis Curti and Marina Aliverti presents about sixty images, strictly in black and white and in large sizes, of the landscapes and inhabitants of Greenland, Iceland and Siberia, taken by masters of documentary photography like Ragnar Axelsson, Carsten Egevang and Paolo Solari Bozzi.

The protection of one of the last natural environments not exploited by man, the looming danger of global warming, awareness of themes of environmental sustainability and climate change: these are some of the concepts addressed by Arctic: the last frontier.

The in-depth investigation focuses on a large region of the planet from three different angles – Greenland, Siberia and Iceland – and on the life of the Inuit population, just 150,000 individuals forced in their everyday existence to come to terms with the difficulties of a hostile environment.
