"Ishavsgast is a book of records by the artist's father, Asbjorn Trygve Aagaard (1927-2006). In his youth, Aagaard was a fisherman, seal and musk hunter, while later he became an engineer. But most of all he was an adventurer and a photographer. The descriptions in the book are from the Norwegian coast, Greenland and the West Ice. Aagaard treasured his experiences in the Arctic sea fully and to its limits. The last record in the book, "Loss," is a novel built upon his adventures at the West Ice. He took photographs during his trips with his Leica camera. The last pages in the book are graphic reports, at the end of his life, with a reduced capacity to use a pen, but still with the Arctic sea in him."--From the publisher's website. Text in Norwegian and English by Hilde Aagaard and Asbjorn Trygve Aagaard. Photo by Asbjorn Trygve Aagaard. Edition of 600.
