Photography Exhibit, by Barry Pottle
1 May-3 June 2013 • Allen Library, North Lobby
Foodland Security is about the challenge of Inuit in urban settings to gain access to “country food” (food from the land). Pottle’s work focuses primarily on the Inuit community in Ottawa including cultural activities and images that reflect Inuit identity. His goal is to explore this very robust community and to highlight its richness and vibrancy.
Barry Pottle is an Ottawa-based photographer originally from Nunatsiavut, Labrador (Rigolet). He has a BA in Aboriginal Studies from Carleton University. Pottle uses photography as a medium to give focus to issues currently facing Inuit culture.
