The picture of patience

In 2019, on his third and most recent trip, Chu decided to eschew Greenland's natural landscapes and instead focus on finding inspiration in its villages and communities, an itch he'd been wanting to scratch since his time in Tasiusaq.

"Each village has a different level of exposure to outsiders, so I thought I might find different ways of life and measure the impact of foreign influences on local culture," he says.

One of his destinations was Upernavik. There are few photos of this remote outpost on the internet, let alone wintery scenes, so Chu had no idea what to expect before he arrived.

Chu remembers that on the flight, all he could see from the window of his plane was a blanket of white covering the earth below, then, growing larger by the minute, a warm glowing spot hove into view. "The tranquil beauty of the village was beyond my imagination," Chu extols. "It was a wow moment."
