After project ‘Broken Line’ Olaf returned to Greenland to supplement another series of photographs for his new project ‘Above Zero’. This time his travels would take him even further into the interior, since he intended to portray the Greenland Ice Sheet, the vast body of ice covering the surface of Greenland.

Equipped with satellite pictures (provided by NASA), he made his way through the ice to seek out the spectacle of the melting ice surfaces. Temperatures above zero leads to rivers that find their way over and through the ice leaving beautiful traces of both the natural and environmental phenomenon.

Becker captured furnace rivers in all of their beauty by documenting their race through Greenland. The impressive images not only convince because of their composition, serenity and beautiful colours, but by stressing the qualities of photography when it comes to capturing time and legacy.
