Book of the Week
by Jacob Aue Sobol
In 1999, photographer Jacob Aue Sobol went to the settlement of Tiniteqilaaq, Greenland, where he lived the life of a fisherman and hunter and fell in love with a girl named Sabine. Compiled over three years, the photographs and narratives in his book create an intensely intimate record of his encounter with Sabine and life on the east coast of Greenland.

A photograph is not created by a photographer. What they do is just to open a little window and capture it. The world then writes itself on the film. The act of the photographer is closer to reading than it is to writing. They are the readers of the world.
