Apologies for this rather late post. We’ve been busy crying. Crying that we’ll soon be leaving Kalaallit Nunaat and for having met yet another mountain of a person. Jakob Sørensen rocked our lives in Greenlandic as he said ‘yes’ at Nuukullak ‘entrepeneur valley’ (once again a top-tip from our guide Najâraq).
Jakob is from Arsuk and has worked in a (Ivigtût) cryolite mine, as a fisherman on a Faroese fishing boat, he did a little police training back in Greenland but didn’t like it and bought a taxi instead. He has also worked as a whaler in Spitsbergen and Tromsø, studied at the Skagen Maritime School to be a skipper, worked as an inspector onboard sailing boats and trawlers and feeding the Arctic Command with iceberg research data. When we asked what he thought about the shoot, he said it was ‘just a regular day’. Fantastic man.
Before all this though, we opened our latest exhibition at the Greenland National Museum. Thank you Joelle and the Museum team for having us!
