Bryan Alexander has photographed in indigenous communities around the Arctic every year since 1971.
During the past few years, Bryan has been working on a new project, ‘Then & Now.’ This has involved him revisiting Arctic communities that he first worked in many years ago and re-photographing people. Some of them are Inuit hunters he travelled with on journeys by dog sled in Greenland, others are reindeer herders he met on migrations in Siberia. Some were young children at remote camps on the tundra when Bryan first photographed them.
Pairing up the early photographs of people with the recent images of them makes an intriguing and unique set of portraits that illustrate some of the changes that have taken place in their lives and in their communities.
