Globe-trotting Travel Series #23: Documentary Photographer Pat Kane, Yellowknife, Northwest Territory, Canada via The Atlantic

Day 23 of the Globe-trotting Travel Series takes us into the Arctic Circle, to Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territory of Canada. Resident and documentary filmmaker Pat Kane found himself out of work. His wife suggested he take pictures of people in the community through their windows and the idea took off, becoming the seed that would develop into this beautiful, short film featured by The Atlantic. This area is sparsely populated and very isolated, making it easier in some ways to retreat from the virus, but a breach in this community, with so little health care, would be catastrophic. The Northwest Territory, largely indigenous, is taking the threat very seriously and hunkering down. Resilience is a quality they know very well.
