Arctic Greenland can be said to be far from the globalized world. Because of this, their culture can be very strange if not shocking to us. In Arctic Greenland, hunting is still being practiced. The collection showed how the rural hunting culture in the cold place of Greenland has been preserved. In our world today, despite the changes and globalization, it is our pride to be able to maintain and preserve a certain culture or way of life despite the pressure of globalization and changes. The last of the five artists, Richard Misrach, focused and took pictures of how human added destruction to what has been left after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. His collection concentrated on graffiti of human devastation after a catastrophe in New Orleans. The photographs showed spray-painted messages of being blocked and abandoned after the disaster. The photos were very powerful. The words used were strong. The collection of Misrach showed how people in our world today use different means of telling the world about their feelings and opinions. Sadly, some people do not know how to express their feelings the right way. Some may have used ways that can be said to be unfavorable. While looking and observing on the pictures taken by Misrach, feeling of aversion or hatred felt by those who wrote the graffiti were really captured and shown in the images. It is understandable why these people had so much anger or rage in their hearts because of the calamity, but nevertheless, they forgot that the way they expressed their feelings added to what has been destructed by the hurricane.
