Evan is one of a handful of year-round inhabitants of Ilimanaq, Greenland, a settlement whose name means “Place of Expectations.” Evan, who has lived here for several decades, recalls that twenty years ago people would “run ice” as a source of winter income, cutting and hauling slabs of coastal ice to inland communities for use preserving food in the summer. Now, he says, there is no ice to run.PHOTOGRAPH BY NANCY FORDE, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC YOUR SHOT
