For those of you who like to look to the north and glory in Canada's arctic landscape the Glenbow Museum in Calgary has a
show for you: North of Ordinary: The Arctic Photographs of Geraldine and Douglas Moodie, running through to September 10, 2017.
Geraldine Moodie was western Canada's first professional woman photographer and starting in 1903 she went with her husband Douglas, a senior member of the North West Mounted Police on expeditions to the detachment at Fullerton Harbour on Hudson Bay. While her husband, who was trained as a photographer by his wife took landscape shots Geraldine set up a studio in the detachment and took intimate portraits of the local Inuit.
If the prospect of seeing North of Ordinary excites you but you aren't planning on travelling to Calgary soon you can satisfy your longing by going to the museum's website and into their digital archives where some 500 prints taken in the north can be seen. The couple's diaries from their northern visits are also available for scrutiny. The photographs I have seen are just wonderful.
