About the book

The Disko Bay Area on the west coast of Greenland is at the heart of a unique and spectacular Arctic environment. The traveller will experience rising mountains, rushing streams, lush shrublands, and calving glaciers, pushing giant chunks of ice into the sea.

In this photo book, the photographer and writer Bo Normander invites the reader to explore the diversity of nature and climate in a unique part of the Arctic. Roughly one fourth of Greenland’s population lives in the Disko Bay Area. The area is known not only for its natural beauty and the many icebergs, but also as a hub for the global climate debate, as climate change is particularly visible here with rising temperatures and increased melting of the Greenland ice sheet.

With this book in hand, you will get an exclusive insight into Greenland’s nature and climate across the changing seasons and with a look into the changes likely to happen in the near future.
