Portraits of Place: The Arctic in Photographs is at The Anchorage Museum (Alaska USA) is up until January 7th 2017 at the Anchorage Museum, Alaska.
"Portraits of Place breaks open the idea of a pristine landscape and replaces it with a North that is both inhabited and complex. Within this context, the artists in this exhibition examine the Arctic through contemporary photography that conveys a sense of place through human impact and lifeways."
