Ilulissat, Greenland. Each year, the residents here endure 54 days of darkness beginning in November. During this time, they try to live their lives as normal. They continue to hunt and fish.

A fisherman in Ilulissat, Greenland, faces the rising sun after 54 days of darkness. Ilulissat is situated at the mouth of a 25-mile ice fjord filled with enormous icebergs.
