“This Arctic Life”, the series of photographs that garnered a 2011 International Photography Award (IPA) second place finish for, Kieran Oudshoorn, was shot in Iqaluit, Nunavut. It reflects one Inuit family’s combination of traditional and modern lifestyles. Oudshoorn also received a 2011 IPA honourable mention for, “At Home”, a series of photographs depicting young, twenty-something Edmontonians.

Oudshoorn’s recent accolades are a result of a continued commitment to the north and its people and are an example of a young Canadian receiving attention and recognition on the international stage. Oudshoorn, who was born and raised in Edmonton, parlayed his portfolio along with his experience as a freelance photojournalist into a coveted New York internship with the international photographic agency, VII Photo in the winter of 2010. He went on to receive two honourable mentions in the 2010 International Photography Awards. In addition to the Whitehorse Star, Oudshoorn’s photographs have been published in; Yukon NewsUp Here, and What’s Up Yukon
