Beauties Model Sealskins in all of their Glories
Photographer Paul Shoul always tries to get backstage, he goes behind the scenes to find the best shots. Here he found the gorgeous Greenlanders getting in and of their sealskins.
The fashion show was followed by a plea from an Inuit woman, asking Europe and the US to allow importation of marine mammal products, these are currently banned. Her point was that there are more than nine million seals thriving in the waters off Greenland, and the people there kill a tiny percentage. The point is that the seals are not endangered but not being able to sell or import carvings, clothing and other products is hurting Greenlanders.
