Photographing the Inuit

Environmental & Science Education

Humans are critters, too. Animals. Part of nature. Like them products of biological evolution.

We also are culture builders and the more archeaologists and evolutionary biologists uncover, more layers of the past are revealed, driving this home.

In February, Emily Bogle of NPR did a story, one beautifully illustrated with photographs by Brian Adams. He is a professional photographer who has "spent his photography career reconnecting with his own Inuit culture."  At his home page you can find more photographs and information.

Bogle notes that Adams is half Inupiat and writes that it is "'part of an Inuit group, which includes indigenous people in northern Alaska, arctic Canada, Greenland and Russia."

Bogle's story and Adams's photographs may be found here.
