Last May, I travelled across Nunavik for 7 days, visiting 4 communities, photographing different people and aspects of the land for Air Inuit’s new in flight quarterly simply titled, Inuit. The first issue is now out, it features a short series of portraits of some of the inuits I met along the way, including this girl who followed the journalist I was with, Mélissa Guillemette (allô!), and myself as we walked around Inukjuak at sunset. It only took about 3 minutes before she started calling us “mother” and “father”, laughing hysterically as she did so. Her friend asked about my age and, upon finding out I was older than his own father, started calling me grandfather.
I’ll be posting more photos and stories from this adventure in the coming days, as I prepare a short edit for my website.
