Visages au Féminin

L'Association Franco-Culturelle de Yellowknife had 31 professional portraits taken of  women in the Yellowknife area. This book accompanied a larger exhibit at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre. Photographs were staged to communicate something about the cultural heritage or personal story of each woman. The book was formatted to easily accommodate photos in both horizontal and vertical formats. I created an illustration to accompany each photograph. The imagery I used is related to the story conveyed by each photograph. The cover photograph was positioned in such a way that the subject looks as if she is peeking out of the book. This gives it a sense of mystery and makes you wonder what is hidden in its pages.
