Very few photographers have chosen to dedicate their carrier to the Northern most regions of the world. “FACES OF THE NORTH” have Been Ragnar Axelsson’s (RAX) passion for the past 25 years. During that time he has traveled the rugged and harsh terrain of the North capturing the harmony between man and nature.

Through the art of this great photographer we are going to sense the feeling of both climate change and of vanishing lifestyles. Sagafilm will join RAX on a couple of his long term projects, such as the round-up of sheep in Landmannalaugaafrett in Iceland, and as he prepares his next big trip to Greenland. In Greenland we will meet people who are so intertwined with nature, that they are more afraid of government officials than of a starving, eager polar bear in a killing mood.
