It’s undeniable that the Arctic, with its long polar nights and bright midnight suns, has an irresistible charm that draws us in, either by daydreaming or by actually taking a trip there. Greenland is no exception, but this new series by Hamburg-based photographer Jan Erik Waider presents it in a different light— softer than what we might expect.

Always drawn to the North, in his Soft Arctic Light series Jan Erik Waider captures the massive glaciers and icebergs of Greenland, whose size is “simply overwhelming,” as he himself puts it.

You can check out his work in the gallery down below, and follow his adventures through the Nordic countries of our planet also on his Instagram page here.
