Point Hope (food) in iPhone snaps


I visited Point Hope this summer as part of a project funded by the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting with photographer Katie Orlinsky on Alaska Native foods and climate change.  So far we’ve written and shot photos for The Guardian and National Geographic and we have a third story planned this fall. (Also, because I happened to visit Point Hope, I was asked to write an essay to introduce some photos of whaling crews taken by Nathaniel Wilder. )

Anyway, here’s what I brought back from the trip on my phone, mainly food photos, from one of America’s most northern communities.
