Photobook by Ellis Doeven
“My first trip to Point Hope was at the end of September 2008. I had jumped at the opportunity to travel to Alaska but had no idea what to expect.
By chance really, I ended up in Point Hope. A small Inupiaq whaling community, on a land, spit into the Arctic Ocean.
Coming from a densely populated part of Europe where the landscape is in service of people, I felt amazed, really small, and somewhat scared.
I felt I was at the end of the world. Then I met Art, he said, No, this is the beginning.
And so it is.
I fell in love with Art, I fell in love with the Arctic, I fell in love with life in Point Hope.
Nine years later I published my photobook “Maktak and Gasoline”, which photographically portrays this love.”
