Olaf Otto Becker's photographic interest in Nordic landscapes began in 1999, when he first traveled to Iceland. On that trip, he snapped a picture of a retreating glacier. When he returned three years later, the glacier was gone.
Between 2003 and 2006, Becker made a series of solo expeditions in an inflatable Zodiac along the west coast of Greenland, whose rapidly melting ice sheet is proof positive of a global climate in flux.
Becker's photos of the remote North Atlantic shoreline -- taken at night by midsummer light, with a large-format camera and exposures of up to several minutes -- are collected in his second book, Broken Line. Sublime and melancholic, the photos show a shifting, barely habitable landscape in dramatic moments of stillness.
