For a period of time the Greenlandic photographer Inuuteq Storch lived in New York City. Here he found himself spiritually at home but homesick in his body. Growing up in a place, where nature dominates everything, his body, unlike his soul, missed being close to nature.
Those feelings together created a very specific way of looking at his surroundings. He started finding images that represented familiarity in this unfamiliar place.
“I examined my own identity and in this study I began to mirror myself and my origin in the city and the people I met. Suddenly, a parked car became an iceberg, a stranger to a close relation and a shop window to my uncle’s living room. I found pictures that represented me and my culture in these unknown places. In my need for nature, I found a different nature, a nature of the city with its own laws, paths, landscapes and people” – Inuuteq Storch
