Northern Image Photographers
10 Year Anniversary


Gerald Murphy, Nature's Original Corkscrew, 2016, photograph

Founded on the principle of excellence in photography, the Northern Image Photographers is a club composed of local people of all ages who share an interest in improving their photography, both technically and conceptually.

The work of the Northern Image Photographers is celebrated through an annual exhibition hosted by the Mann Art Gallery. Each year a different theme is explored. 2016 marks the 10th anniversary that the photographers have displayed their work at the gallery. Therefore, this year members were encouraged to showcase images that reflect the club name. Appropriately, the club hosts weekend photo tours twice per year in various locations, numerous being in Northern Saskatchewan. Many of the photographers focus primarily on nature and outdoor themes, and enjoy sharing images that highlight the great scenic opportunities close to home.

September 14th - October 14th, 2016

Mahihkan

In early May 2016 we were thrilled to install Mahihkan, the bronze wolf sculpture by Joe Fafard for which we have been fundraising since 2011. Mahihkan is now part of the Permanent Collection of the Mann Art Gallery. Thank you to hundreds of volunteers and donors who have helped us acquire this wonderful work of public art!
