Today 5.000 people live at the 'back' of the world. Only three generations ago these people were literally in the Stone Age, putting their efforts in hunting and fishing. Now their grandsons use internet and cell phones daily.

 

These are de settlers of ‘Tunu’ (the back), as Greenlanders from the West coast called to this narrow coastal line at the East. This is one of the most remote places in the world: during centuries Greenland’s East coast population have been one of the most isolated human communities.

Surprisingly, 150 years ago they discovered that they were not alone in the Earth. In 1884 a Danish expedition found by chance a small tribe nearby the present town of Kulusuk.

 

 

Today Greenland is the least densely populated country in the world. Only 55.000 people inhabit the small ledge of unfrozen coast. This is a photographic quick look to the life style at the hump of the world.
