Oqaatsut is a small town north of Ilulissat in Eastern Disko Bay. As the sun drenched and warmed the colourful homes and rocky landscape, it revealed clues of what life must be like there: a close but isolated community where the spirits of icebergs come and go in the distance. I wanted to convey the feeling of the town by using minimalist compositions and creative framing to provide portraits of life in Greenland. Most of the citizens were indoors, but one citizen overlooked our whereabouts while children played a game and chanted a song that echoed through the town.

John Kosmopoulos is a multiple international award-winning photographer who specializes in architecture, abstract, long exposure, and minimalist black and white fine art photography. His fine art photography has been featured in international publications, galleries, billboards, and books. He espouses an "eclectic aesthethic fine art" philosophy and a psychology of photography that he refers to as "vision drawing (oramagraphy)". He has written several treatises on practical fine art photography and conducts workshops throughout the world.
