Frozen (Book)

By Sarah Michelle Riisager



Sarah Michelle Riisager is a Danish photographer based in Copenhagen. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2016 and her work was shown as part of the Jill Todd Photographic Award 2018.

Frozen is a visual poem from Riisager's travels in Yakutia during winter 2017. It also serves as a survey of this remote place that few of us are familiar with.

"Yakutia is a land of contrasts as the weather during winter fluctuates between freezing and minus 60 degrees. The Yakutians I visited in their homes were warm and hospitable – showing me an openness and love I have rarely experienced before. I fell in love with the harsh environment, the cold and frozen landscape and above all, the people. I was fascinated by the way these young people grow up in villages with only 300 inhabitants and where the winter can last for 8 months."
