Inuuteq Storch Flesh
For a period of time the Greenlandic photographer Inuuteq Storch lived in New York City. Here he found himself spiritually at home but homesick in his body. Growing up in a place, where nature dominates everything, his body, unlike his soul, missed being close to nature.
Those feelings together created a very specific way of looking at his surroundings. He started finding images that represented familiarity in this unfamiliar place.
“I examined my own identity and in this study I began to mirror myself and my origin in the city and the people I met. Suddenly, a parked car became an iceberg, a stranger to a close relation and a shop window to my uncle’s living room. I found pictures that represented me and my culture in these unknown places. In my need for nature, I found a different nature, a nature of the city with its own laws, paths, landscapes and people” -Inuuteq Storch
Inuuteq Storch (b.1989) grew up in Greenland in the 1990s. Most of his photographic work involves studies of his own nationality and cultural roots. Storch has studied photography at Fatamorgana – The Danish School of Art Photography in Copenhagen and at the International Center of Photography in New York.
