Truth and Beauty Gallery presents 1981 The North Pole Dig

Truth and Beauty Gallery shares  H E N R I   R O B I D E A U 1981 The North Pole Dig on view from April 6th to April 19. 

“The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey was originally conceived of as a photographic book project, a study of the major manifestations of human activity in the second largest country in the world, the land of my ancestors, Canada.

The 1981 North Pole Dig was the maiden voyage of The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey.

Leaving Vancouver August 1, the dig party arrived at its destination ten days later, Inuvik NWT, the land of the midnight noon, after having traversed the equivalent of a trip to Chihuahua, Mexico. Another two weeks later the dig arrived back in Vancouver with only five of the original eight members having survived the entire trip. Much of what was learned on that first outing would serve the Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey well for most of the next decade of cross country digs.” 

” In 2016, at the age of 70, and after 50 years in photography I began working on the Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey again with the intent of editing down the 2,000 or so panoramas into the book I had envisioned back in 1980.

That’s what is in this show – the first six pages of contact sheets from the first dig, along with the preliminary edit pages where I have selected, grouped and narrated the images on a worksheet. From these worksheets will come the final stories and book pages of The Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey.”  – H. Robideau
