Intercultural Inuit Woman

I knew this would be the most difficult portrait. It took over 2 years of combing through Alaska and then the North West Territories of Canada before I was lead to the Keeper of Knowledge an elder residing in Toronto Canada. As it is illegal to import seal skin which the outfit is made of I traveled to Toronto to capture this portrayal.
