As our community in northern Manitoba/northern Saskatchewan experienced its first COVID-19 lock down at the end of March 2020, I wondered how the experience was affecting local artists and their creative processes. Over the course of April, May and June 2020, I met with individual artists and photographed them at work. All photo shoots were physically distanced for safety. I met with ten local artists to capture images of their projects and artistic processes. The artists included a potter, painter, quilter, wood turner, luthier (fiddle maker), illustrator, bead worker, metal worker, and two photographers. This body of work is a collection of process images. Thank you to all of the artists who participated in this collaborative process and thank you to the NorVA Centre for hosting this online exhibition.
I am grateful to the SK Arts Micro-Grant Program for their support.
Photos were captured with a Canon 7D and Canon 1D Mark III and Canon 100-400 mm, 50 mm and 10-22 mm lenses.
