Jan Erik Waider’ Photos Capture The Dark Beauty Of Greenland Icebergs And Northern Landscapes

Inside his work, landscape photographer Jan Erik Waider explores the”raw stillness of the Nordic nations.” Last year, we had been amazed by his gorgeous shots of Greenland‘s glacial landscapes. Now, Waider continues to captivate with Beyond No Man’s Land, a series that dives deeper into his creative interest in the Arctic.

Beyond No Man’s Land showcases the diverse beauty of icebergs in Disko Bay, a body of water near the Ilulissat Icefjord in western Greenland. Isolated and seemingly illuminated, the glowing white stripes contrast the dark waters and ominous skies. Each of the icebergs is extremely unique in shape, showing Waider’s innate fascination in catching their natural silhouettes.

The fringed curves of these massive ice giants rests on the water like half-submerged organs from some cosmic animal, possibly a constellation – laying like trenchant dollops on the fading liquid earth. Backlit from some ethereal and baroque force – there are icons in this series that contain both menace and salvation. The duality of nature, ferrying us across the great river styx with tenderness and precision. — BEYOND NO MAN'S LAND (The Passage) Disko Bay, Greenland (2012) — Words by Morgan Schultz | @pennyworksmedia . .
