Our Core Collection

Since 1971 Bryan has been returning to live with different indigenous groups in the North, the depth of this photographic collection shows his enthusiasm and respect for the people and reflects the changes that have taken place during the past 50 years. Without the hospitality and generosity of individuals within these different groups, many of the pictures on this website would not have been possible. Over time we have extended our file of photographs to include the work of other photographers, many of them with the same dedication to Polar extremes as we have ourselves.

Latest Project

During the past few years, Bryan has been working on a new project, ‘Then & Now.’ This has involved him revisiting a number of the communities that he first worked in many years ago. He has re-photographed people, some of whom were children when he first photographed them, and has documented the changes that have happened in their lives and communities.
