Peter is 10 years old. It was his first time at the camp.

In the first week of July I went up to Chibougamau, a town in northern Quebec – a 16 hours drive from Toronto and a town seemingly closer to the Hudson Bay than my preferred sort of civilization. I helped my family and their church group to run an annual week-long kids camp for the Cree First Nations kids who live on Ouje-bougamau, a reserve ajacent to the town. Unforgettably cute, unforgettably tragic stories. I have a hard time even a month later trying to process how I felt about the 10 days up there, so maybe the stories will have to wait for later.

    I’m really interested to hear your stories and compare them to my own time spent on the reserve. . .
    last summer I spent a considerable amount of time with my friend Jacob, who was living on the res running a social program for recreation on the res. I think he’s still processing. . .

    i love your photography, i was wondering if you were using a lens made for a smaller sensor (on your 5d) on the first pic with the radical vignetting?

    thanks. and that is correct. i’m using an EF-S lens on it. (well, not really ef-s since it’s a tokina, but close enough).
