About the Book
Greenland's unrelentingly harsh environment, with an almost total absence of natural resources, makes it no place for the faint-hearted. Yet against a stunning backdrop of calving glaciers and towering mountain peaks, the inhabitants of its southern region display a resilience that is as inspirational as the spectacular landscape they call home.

A passionate photographer, he has travelled widely throughout the UK, Europe and Asia capturing locales as diverse as the windswept St Kilda archipelago, Chernobyl, Transylvania’s verdant woodlands, the vast plains of Siberia, and the thriving cityscapes of Budapest, Zurich, Prague, Cracow, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Moscow, Ekaterinburg and Beijing to name but a few. He lives in the sleepy seaside town of his birth on England’s north west coast.
