Viewpoints Of The North

 Departing from the exhibits in yesterday's post, I went out onto the terrace and photographed the campus over at the University of Ottawa.

Stepping back inside, I took these two shots in the corridor of a collaborative work, Reflections H20. This work masterminded by Emily Rose Michaud was done through her workshops with high school students.

Into the next exhibit, a joint collaboration between two artists, Leslie Reid and Robert Kautik, featuring photography and other works of the far north, emphasizing the environmental fragility of the region. This series of photographs by Kautik features life around Clyde River, also known as Kangiqtugaapik.

Reid created After The Cryogenic (Snowball Earth), a series of photos printed onto plates featuring fossils from 720-635 million years ago. 

One place, two seasons in winter and summer. Kautik used a drone to photograph Umiujaq Spring (Agnes Monument). 

This long series of panels features the Dahlbreen glacier photographed by Reid, titled Ice Wall: Facing Dahlbreen. 

A Daily Drive is the title of this set of photos by Kautik.

Another pair of captures by Kautik via drone, showing icebergs from above.


  1. I like the colourful tiles composition.

  2. The drone photos of the icebergs are unlike anything I've seen before.

  3. I doubt that, at this stage in my life, I will ever travel to the far north, and I regret that. It really does shape our national character in so many ways, even though most of us will never have an intimate connection to it.

  4. Pretty views of the sky! The H20 art exhibit looks beautiful. Take care, have a great day!

  5. I love that new header with the goose surveying its domain.

  6. Beautiful exhibition with a nice build-up to the pinnacle of the photos of that iceberg.

  7. ...Reflections H20 is fabulous.

  8. I really like those tiles, nice reflection.

  13. Buena colaboración de los estudiantes, en esta fascinante exposición.

  14. The photo exhibits are wonderful.

  15. @Sharon: I think so.

    @Bill: they are, yes.

    @Carol: thank you.

    @Mirada: thanks.

    @RedPat: I agree.

  16. That is quite something. I went to uOttawa in '81!

  17. The Reflections exhibit is a lovely one.

  18. I am surprised to see them following old tracks in the Daily Drive series. Most landscape photogs will try to shoot pristine sands and snows. The tracks do tell a story though.

  19. Perfect blue skies over the campus buildings:)
