A photography exhibit.
Churchill Manitoba September, 2015 – “I wander the shoreline of Hudson Bay. The coastline rock formations fascinate me. I run my hands along the smooth glacial scoured surfaces of the shoreline. The Precambrian shield is exposed softened into a petrified drapery flowing out into the bay. 544 million years old, the most stable geologic formations on earth. I stare into their soft undulating forms. I wonder what they have seen. I imagine the history of the Thule, the Inuit, the Dene, and Cree. These elements will remain for another million years sharing the teachings of the land from those who stood before me. These stones are the keepers of stories. Markers in time. Witnesses to our spirits.” – Arlea Ashcroft
