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 in New York and in this study I began to mirror myself and my origin in the city and in the people I met. I found images that represented me and my culture in this unknown place. All while longing for the natur. In Greenland nature is everywhere. In New York everything is made by humans. Even the parks, they decide which kind of nature there should be and what kind of trees to grow. It’s a fake nature. The only real nature is the sky.”-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.
