Facets of Alaskan Life

Inuit indigenous ethnic groups inhabit an area stretching from North-East Siberia across the Bering Strait to Alaska up to Northern Canada all the way to Greenland. Climate change is already causing significant transformations having all kinds of impacts. For around four million people, the Arctic region is neither a curiosity, nor is it untouched wilderness: It is home.

Since 2015, photographer Brian Adams from the Inupiaq ethnic group has been traveling through Alaska, capturing the Inuit and their individual stories and finding out how they spend their individual lives in the 21st century. Visiting around 20 communities, he took portraits of the residents and recorded their narratives, sharing these across social media. This project I am Inuit as well as this book has the aim of promoting understanding, dismantling stereotypes as well as misperceptions and connecting the world with Alaskan Inuits, and the Arctic, through common humanity.
