SIMON

Igloolik, Nunavut, Canada 2013

This picture will always retain a special place in any personal retrospective of my work over the years. It was so cold and it does show on the face of Simon Qamanirg as he built our igloo in northern Nunavut. My approach in portraiture is to get as close to the subject as possible and work with a prime wide-angle lens in order to incorporate a sense of place around the subject matter. I got frostbite that night but – on balance – it was worth it.
