  • This exhibition was part of the Canadian Circumpolar Institute’s 50th Anniversary celebrations. The curators are Professor Lawrence Khlinovski Rockhill, a visiting scholar at the CCI and Dr. Elena Khlinovskaya Rockhill, Principal Investigator for the international project \"Moved by the State: Perspectives on Relocation and Resettlement in the Circumpolar North,\" based at the CCI and the Department of Anthropology, University of Alberta. Pavel Zhdanov and Andrey Osipov, two well-known Magadan photographers, spend a great deal of their time travelling around the Magadan Region and documenting the life of the region throughout the various seasons, from boiling summer temperatures to the freezing cold of winter, about which Alberta residents know only too well. They photograph the lives of gold miners and fishermen,of the remnants--both human and material--of the Madadan GULAG history, of post-Soviet ghost towns and happier occasions of weddings and community celebrati ons. All these find their outlet in publications of books, photo-albums, and photo-exhibits, both locally and outside Magadan.This was their first exhibition abroad.
