This Photographer Captured What Canada’s Military Looks Like at the Arctic Front
 

Arctic Front is the first chapter in a long-term project examining Canada’s post-Afghanistan military, presenting the viewer with a glimpse of contemporary military culture—whether that is in training, peacekeeping, capacity-building, or all-out war. It’s a project that is the meeting of my two lives, as I spent more than ten years with the Canadian Forces before becoming a professional photographer, serving in some the world’s most conflicted regions (Iraq, Afghanistan, the West Bank, and Northern Africa.)

For Arctic Front, I spent two weeks split between Rankin Inlet, Taloyoak, and King William Island in the Canadian territory of Nunavut with the Canadian Rangers. This wasn’t my first time up in the Arctic. As a young soldier in the Canadian Army, I traveled to Gjoa Haven to learn how to hunt, fish, build shelters, and navigate on the land with the specialized unit.
