In Nunavut there is space and time to feel smaller than your ego. Love them or hate them you get to know your neighbours. The towns are filled with life and activity as honest and real as the landscape they are carved into. With every camp stove story, every icy sunset, every howling dog team my love for this place grows and I excitedly wait for the next adventure to begin.
My name is Brayden Elliott and I'm from 'the gap' (Saskatchewan) as some people call it. I'm currently in between jobs, which leaves more time for photography and hopefully travel. I grew up in Saskatoon and travelled all the way to Lloydminster for college where I took business classes in between basketball practices which seems like ages ago. I won a three point competition in an Asian basketball tournament one time.
I believe that images (drawings and photography) can act as a universal language, helping to foster communication and understanding between people with different cultures and worldviews. Art is a medium through which scientists can expand on their ideas and share their interests. For me, photography is a way to acknowledge the important link between the people who live in the region and the scientific research that takes place here.
