Steve Giovinco DENMARK 2016 Headshot

Danish Project Support, 2016

This award supported the completion of Steve Giovinco’s photo series Inertia. Photographed in southern Greenland, this series documents changes to land, ice and communities through images of the country’s ice-scarred earth, shrinking glaciers and modern and ancient human settlements. Taken at dawn, twilight or nighttime, these haunting images remind the viewer of the impact of human history on the land, and should “crystallize a feeling of inertia taking place in the primordial landscape of Greenland.” Visit Steve’s website here, and see his blog post “Capturing Changing Environment, Haunting Beauty of Melting Glaciers in Greenland” to see a preview of his project Inertia.
