I am delighted to be chosen as one of the winners of the Tokyo International Photography Competition (TIPC) for my project 'Sea Ice Stories', a series about Inuit subsistence hunting and camping traditions in the Canadian Arctic. This award will result in a traveling group exhibition with seven other artists in New York, Dublin, Tokyo, and Taipei — centered around the theme of climate change, its causes, and its effects.

Thank you to United Photo Industries and TOKYO INSTITUTE OF PHOTOGRAPHY(T.I.P/72Gallery) for this opportunity, and to the families in Arctic Bay who welcomed me into their lives for this project. I hope that the exhibition can help viewers understand how the sea ice ecosystem is important for Inuit subsistence hunting, culture, and the transfer of traditional knowledge.

Note: Due to the pandemic, actual exhibition dates/venues will be specified at a later date. Stay tuned for more!
