Welcome to Iceberg Capital of the World – Design You Trust

Welcome to Iceberg Capital of the World

1

Stunning images show the rolling splendor of the “iceberg capital of the world” under auroras. The photographer even includes himself in many of the shots – a signature of his that offers a fresh take on the conventional selfie, as well as providing a sense of scale to his works. Ziskas shot the photographs over a 10-day visit to western Greenland in September. Here: the photographer includes himself to provide a sense of scale to his works.

With the city’s neighbouring Illulissat Icefjord, the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere, featuring enormous frozen structures.

In order to capture some of the images, Paul, 36, from Banff in Alberta, Canada, uses time-lapse photography to maximise exposure to light.

He plans to return to the area in 2016, along with a fellow photographer and 16 participants, offering photo workshops in Illulissat and nearby Disko Bay.

Paul said: “I’ve always been fascinated by wild, remote, undocumented places and I’ve also always had a penchant for the Arctic, so I’d been considering Greenland for a long time”.

7

“I love how the night-time can turn familiar places into completely different experiences”.

8

“I’m always blown away by all the beauty that the camera reveals but the naked eye cannot see”.

Paul Zizka’s collection of images shows the likes of the Northern Lights illuminating the night sky as well as endless rows of iceberg after iceberg.

Illulissat is the Kalaallisut (the standard dialect of Greenlandic language) word for iceberg.

11

“It has an incredible ‘end of the world’ feel”.

12

“Among many other things, the scale of everything is what blew me away the most in Greenland“.

13

“I also love all the elements of magic associated with astrophotography: aurora, stars, moonlight”.

These stunning images highlight the delicate splendour of a region dubbed the Iceberg Capital of the World.
