The landmark Sermitsiaq mountain towers over the northern portion of Nuuk, Greenland's capital city. Nuuk is a bustling modern city, today seen as a success story of blending Greenland's Inuit heritage with a global economy. #greenland #nuuk⠀

Welcome to the #HumanArctic, a glimpse at how humans have reshaped the landscape of the North. Just decades ago it was seen by Europeans as the last unexplored wilderness. Today the Arctic is ground zero for climate change and coveted by superpowers for its natural resources. The Arctic’s primary inhabitants remain indigenous peoples, who are both role models for indigenous communities globally and dealing with issues globalization has wrought. #arctic

A set of caribou antlers demarcates the corner of a bushplane airstrip in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Despite being one of the most remote wilderness areas on earth, people visit the Arctic Refuge to hike and raft down its braided rivers. #anwr #caribou #alaska⠀

The aurora borealis blazes over Arctic ice. The draw of the Northern Lights has greatly increased tourism in the North, leading to faster globalization for formerly isolated Arctic communities. Even the lagoon the aurora is seen over is a modern occurrence, created by a rapidly melting Icelandic glacier.⠀

A young polar bear stares wistfully at the recently butchered carcass of a bowhead. While spring and fall whale hunts provide a source of food for the bears, the fall hunt is especially critical for bears on the verge of starvation caused by reduced pack ice in the summer months.⁣⠀

Join me on an Arctic adventure with @natgeoexpeditions! We’re headed to the Bering Strait and the Russian High Arctic. Onboard the National Geographic Orion, I’ll be your photography expert and teacher for the expedition. Along the way we’ll visit Siberian Yup’ik villages in Arctic Russia, see a polar bear nursery on Wrangel Island, and cross the Bering Sea on an ice-class vessel! You can find out more at the link my bio. #arctic #alaska #siberia #wrangel #expedition

A pile of caribou skulls and antlers rests in the yard of an Iñupiaq home. Iñupiaq hunters trade or give away antlers and ivory to community artists, who will carve them for sale. ⁣⠀

A polar bear patrols the sea ice slowly in search of seal breathing holes for its prey. This large male has seen many battles and has the scars to show for it.⁣⠀

An Arctic Tern hovers over a small pool on the tundra. Arctic Terns are the long-distance champions of the animal world, migrating from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back each year.⁣
