A photographer from the community of Arctic Bay,  in Canada’s eastern Arctic territory of Nunavut,   is a finalist in an international photography contest for his portrait of the community’s eldest elder.

Clare Kines’s picture of elder Qapik Attagutsiak was one of 90 finalists recognized in the Global Arctic Awards International Photography Competition.

“She’s one of my favourite people,” Kines says. “The picture turned out well, plus it tells a story about an aspect of her life.”

The contest features work from photographers from 34 countries.

Kines’ photo will be featured in an exhibit in Moscow in April.
