Hannah Campbell is a photographic artist who lives in Vancouver on Coast Salish territories. Hannah completed her B.F.A at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2012, and has exhibited work throughout Vancouver and parts of North America. Her work won the Canon Photography Award in 2012, and the Gordon Smith Top Visual Artist award in 2008. She was among 27 artists selected to attend The Arctic Circle Residency in Svalbard, Norway in 2013, and was recently chosen to participate in the Sointula Art Shed Residency in Sointula BC. Hannah uses art as a medium to share stories, and weave together collective experiences between the viewer and her subjects.

Arctic Fiction

These photos are part of a larger series titled Arctic Fiction. This series was produced during an artist residency in Svalbard, Norway in the Arctic Circle. The series documents the changing and dynamic landscape of the Arctic, one that is quickly and forever altered due to climate change. For me, going to the arctic and photographing the land felt like I was witnessing a changing history. The Arctic that I saw will not be the same arctic that future generations will see. The title Arctic Fictionreflects how many people treat the natural environment as far away, almost fictional places that they don’t need to protect or look after. Athough we utterly depend on them for our own survival, we often feel detached from our environmental surroundings.
