Last week, I was in Greenland. In Nuuk. It was a strange mix of city and country on the water. Big city buildings, large apartment blocks, all mixed with rocky terrain, no grass, and old beautiful country homes. These photographs are from 2 of the blocks that are part of the large neighborhood of Soviet style run-down apartment buildings built to house all of the Greenlanders moving from the country to the city for jobs. One of the buildings alone has 5,000 people living in it. That is 10% of Greenland´s population!
