The Everyday Life in Greenland

Greenland is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. It's the 13th largest country by area but it has the population of only 56,000 people. Here are very interesting photos made by a Norwegian photographer Andrea Gjestvang that illustrate the everyday life of Greenland.
