Christian Åslund Photographs

Hailing from Sweden, Christian was commissioned to photograph the Greenpeace 2013 Save the Arctic expedition to the North Pole. In 2007 a Russian submarine mission dropped a flag on the sea bed below the North Pole to bolster a 2001 territorial claim. Towing all we required in sleds, a large team from Greenpeace skied a short distance to the North Pole where we lowered a glass and titanium ball topped with a flag to the sea bed, reclaiming the region for all of humanity.
