Entry Description:

The melt water runs twenty-five miles through the mountains
from the Ice Sheet of Greenland before it reaches the beautiful
valley of Kangerlussuaq. Here lies Orpigaq. An orphanage for
young Greenlanders, who have nothing good in common, that is
if you ask them.

All through life they have been let down by the people who were
supposed to protect them. Caught in patterns of crime, drugs,
self-harm, violence and sexual abuse, they are young people
our society has failed. And for them the orphanage is the last
hope, and the last stop before jail.

In the following portrait series youll meet Louis, Kristian,
Nuunu, Suulut, Inuuteq and Aima. Each of them are presented
with their own portrait and asked what they think, when they
look at themselves
