Harry Okpik who participates in the grueling 600 km. Ivakkak dogsled race across Nunavik.
Looking at so many excited kids and young adults running behind and chasing Harry Okpik, after his arrival in Inukjuak, brought tears to my eyes, considering his legacy of passion and knowledge about raising dogs and running the sled.
Keep on eye on the future screening of Okpik’s Dream, a film is based on Harry Okpik who participates in the grueling 600 km. Ivakkak dogsled race across Nunavik.
As a photographer, I learned to read the light! I am always on the lookout for its magic, in colors, in patterns, in its contrasts; my goal is to bring a reflection on the beauty of nature and its inhabitants; my challenge is to show space and motion;my vision is that « light is always there »!
This will be my sixth participation in Ivakkak.Over the next five weeks prior to this year race, I will post the images I like the most from my previous years.
