Paul Seesequasis is a writer, curator and cultural activist. His work ha been published in Granta, Brick, The Globe and Mail, Maclean’s, among others. ‘Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun‘ was published by Knopf Canada in October, 2019. He curates the Indigenous Archival Photo Project, a multi-platform initiative.
Presently, my writing and research is focused on Indigenous photography, historical narratives and the process of visual reclamation. The writing is inspired by archival photography, by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous photographers and the narratives inspired by the photographs.
‘Turning The Lens’: Indigenous Archival Photo Project is at The Art Gallery of Swift Current from January 11 to March 1. It features historical photos from the Nekaneet Cree Nation and the Metis Settlement of Lac Pelletier.
