© John Dunn "Across the ice/Sur La Glace" 1990
The wealth of images of the Arctic that Canadian Geographic accumulated since 1930 and the extensive work of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and The Canadian Museum of Nature in this region are clear reflections of how the North has always been at the very heart of Canadian identity.
The Accessible Arctic brings the beauty of the North close to us as it speaks of its past, present and future. These quintessential images of nature and life in the arctic also remind us of the vast treasure that we hold in trust for future generations.
Proudly presented by the High Commission of Canada, Canberra in association with the University Gallery, University of Newcastle.
