Bill’s passion is telling visual stories. He's a freelance
photographer and writer working mainly in the resource
and corporate markets, and has to his credit On Good Ice, a
photo-story book about the iconic ice roads to the diamonds
mines. Bill, 60, will mark 50 years living North of 60 this
August, (see Blast Past on p. 37).


Nicole Garbutt is a born and raised Old Towner. An artist
in many mediums, she works primarily as a makeup artist
and body painter. Her work can be found at
NGmakeupartistry. Writing this piece was a challenge as
the Wildcat is so close to her heart (p. 26). Come visit her
this summer at the cafe and she'll make sure your pint glass
stays full.


Rassi Nashalik hosted the daily TV news program CBC
Igalaaq for 19 years before her retirement in April. Born in
Pangnirtung, she spent the first 10 years of her life moving
with her family by dog team and boat to hunting camps.
She writes about those experiences, and the fearful time of
being taken away to attend public school, on p. 73. She lives
in Old Town.

Van Horn

At age five, Alberta-born Tim Van Horn had already taken
his first photograph and had decided on a life path as a
“cameraman.” Growing up and traveling in the Canadian
military, Tim was hooked on movement and cultural
experience, and wanted to create a lifetime journey as a
photojournalist. Tim sees the Canadian Mosaic Project
(p. 39), as his creative-tour-of-duty to unite the country.


Despite his contribution to “Yellowknife’s Best Outdoor
Dates” (p. 58), the closest thing to a date that photographer
Brian Kinzie has been on in Yellowknife was a four-day
canoe trip. The outcome of that trip convinced him
to move to Yellowknife after completing a diploma in
Commercial Photography in Montreal. Since his arrival
last summer he has worked to document and champion
the esoteric things that make Yellowknife unique, such
as salvaged dump scores, local food progenitors and
disappearing shacks.
