Ragnar ‘Rax’ Axelsson is amongst the most celebrated photographers in the world. His acclaimed series of portraits, Faces of the North, is a living document showcasing the dying cultures of the far northern reaches of the planet; Icelandic farmers, fishermen and the great hunters of Greenland.

Fascinated by stories of half-forgotten people who have adapted to extreme conditions, Rax is now documenting them as they cope with extreme climatic changes resulting from global warming.

Produced in association with BBC Storyville and filled with breathtaking visuals, Last Days of the Arctic is a celebration of an artist and his subjects, an eulogy for a disappearing landscape and its inhabitants.
