Under Currents, the most recent photo series from Thomas Kneubuhler (who we’re excited to include in our upcoming Montreal issue), focuses on uncomfortable relations between aboriginal peoples and hydroelectric developments in northern Quebec. From the artist’s statement: ”Northern Quebec is traditionally a nomad’s land, home to the native Inuit and Cree. Ironically, in the course of the development, it is the workers from the south that become nomadic: they are flown in for their work shifts and housed in temporary work camps, whereas the native population, displaced by the installation’s progress, are settled in subdivisions.”
