Grounded… in Nunavut.

Rankin Inlet, Nunavut

I arrived here to art-direct a photography shoot on Tuesday, just as a blizzard was closing in on this remote Inuit community on the northwest coast of Hudson Bay. Our crew has been trying to leave for days now… but true to the notoriously stormy reputation that Rankin Inlet has, nothing’s flying in or out (due to near white-out conditions). Current temperature: minus 55° C wind-chill (minus 70° F) with visibility ranging from 30 to 300 meters. Hoping that a flight may open up on Friday…

Lots of power outages, and Internet access from the hotel we’re in has been pretty dodgy as well… ergo, no blog posts for a few days.
