"In Inuit mythology, the story of the otherworldly Qalupalik is told by Inuit parents to prevent children from wandering too close to the dangerous shorelines. These sea-dwelling creatures with long hair and green skin, hide beneath the surface of the freezing Arctic waters .... In September 2017 I journeyed north by fishing boat from Disko Bay in West Greenland to remote Ikerasak Fjord. Large fragments of drifting ice sliced through the black arctic waters, reaching far below the surface of the water into a mysterious third dimension."
