Novosibirsk region, Siberia: A power plant and industrial tailings pond now occupy the place where thousands of executed prisoners were buried in mass graves by Soviet authorities in the 1930s. The burial site, located in the town of Kubyshev, was first discovered by construction workers in the 1960s when they were digging the foundations of a nearby chemical plant. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the Russian government issued approximately 1500 exoneration notices to the families of those buried in #Kubyshev. The letters stated that their relative had been executed in Kubyshev, but had been innocent of the charges brought against them. Hundreds of Mennonites were amongst the victims. 📸 @ianwillms #WhyWeWalk #BurialSite #BorealCollective at Novosibirsk, Russia

The one and only. I remember when I took this he said, “you’re making fun of me!” And of course I said I wasn’t, which was true at the time, but now I laugh every time I notice his shirt buttoned wrong. Florida 2013 (I think). . . #borealcollective #namarareps #weshallsee #leica

'Mexico Town’s Identity Was Defined by 1 Party. Then, the People Turned on It.' . Reporting from President Enrique Peña Nieto and the PRI party's hometown, @kirksemple and I talked to frustrated and disenfranchised voters. The PRI lost everything to the Morena party and president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador. All the way down to the town mayor of Atlacomuclo, who hasn't not been a PRI member in recent memory. A big surprise for many. .

What a great week at #arles2018. Feeling overjoyed to have met so many lovely souls and made new friends. Especially grateful to my Slovenian photo family who adopted me into their home this week. We had a blast. So much great work, so many lovely books. I’m leaving with a head full of ideas for my upcoming book, We Shall See. I’ll be posting updates on that as they come. Homeward bound now. See you in Toronto! 🙏🚀 #borealcollective #namarareps at Arles, France

Every year, on June 21st, which marks National Indigenous Day, the Aamjiwnaang community gathers for what they call Solidarity Day, which culminates in a concert and fireworks. So today, I’d like to take the time to say Boozhoo and Chi Migweech to everyone in the Aamjiwnaang community who have welcomed me into their homes and lives, and helped me grow. 📸 @lbutetroch.

Gloria Olivia Rodriguez sailed for 3 days from Puerto Mensajero with her family to Mitu across the Vaupes river to vote in the first presidential round in the Colombian elecciones on May 27, 2018; “I came by my own decision, nobody forced me, it is also what the Western world has taught us”. Gloria and her family were the first boat that arrived to Mitu on elections day. Today the Colombians will decide if they continue with a government that has promoted paramilitary groups and who voted against the peace, or if they follow a new path for their country. In the Amazon region of the Vaupes, Gustavo Petro had a majority of votes at the first electoral round. @borealcollective #borealcollective #riovaupes #amazonascolombianas #mitu #wherethelandremains #isthistomorrow #colombia #cubeos #eleccionescolombia2018 #rolleiflex #120film at Mitú

A few spreads form my current book dummy for #WeShallSee, which was just awarded an Honourable Mention for the CONTACT Festival’s Burtynsky Grant last month. I’m feeling pretty heartened to get such encouragement so early in the process. I’ve been working the edit this week and plan to have a new dummy printed shortly. . . #borealcollective #namarareps #contactfestival

As recently as the 1960’s, the First Nation reserve of Fort McKay, on the Athabasca River in northern Alberta’s boreal forest, had no running water, the people lived in shacks, and there were no roads connecting it to the rest of Canada. They sustained themselves through hunting and trapping, as their ancestors had for thousands of years. But as 83-year-old elder Zackary Powder says, “It’s not like it used to be. Everything has changed.” • A tar-like substance known as bitumen, which lies embedded in the earth beneath the boreal forest here, was the foundation for transformation. Once used to waterproof the canoes of the region's aboriginal people, bitumen-laced sand, or “oil sand,” has become one of the fastest growing sources of energy in the world. Over the last twenty years, the Canadian government has leased out vast swaths of indigenous territory to the world’s largest energy corporations in order to develop oil sands. • Since November 2011, water has been delivered to every home in Fort McKay after the community realized they had been drinking water with high levels of the carcinogenic chemical trihalomethanes.

La Ley del Monte; this idea from the Mexican Revolution theorizes that the laws of the land are always in favour of the powerful. Over time, many have decided to tackle their own conflicts, which were generated by an immature political system that seems to be always on the right side of the law. 📸 @mauriciopalos #Mexico #BorealCollective #Revolution at Mexico

Sometimes, symbols sneak in without you noticing. It’s only when editing using prints, moving them around on a large table that you notice them. While in the US, last summer, I was drawn to overt traces of faith and patriotism, namely crosses and flags. Yet those themes also manifested themselves unintentionally, though, in hindsight, their representation are far from subtle. 📸 @lbutetroch #travelswithcharley #borealcollective

Centroamericanos viajan en un tren de carga en camino a la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos, el 15 de abril de 2008 en Arriaga, Chiapas. A medida que surgen presiones del gobierno de los Estados Unidos, el gobierno mexicano está considerando militarizar su propia frontera sur; el viaje que enfrentan los migrantes en territorio mexicano va acompañado de violaciones a los derechos humanos tanto por parte de autoridades mexicanas como de miembros de los cárteles de la droga. @borealcollective | @mauriciopalos La imagen es parte del trabajo de Mauricio Palos, realizado en 2008 y que forma parte del libro "My Perro Rano. Crónicas de Centroamérica" (Editorial RM, 2010). #everydaylafrontera #borealcollective #myperrorano #centralamericanchronicles #editorialrm #migrantes #migrants #migración #migration #labestia #centralamerican #immigration #theborder #chiapas #exodus #fronterasur #frontiere #fronteira #lafrontera #usmexicoborder

A group of Central American migrants taking part in a Caravan wait in line to review visa status in Mexico, in a temporary camp in Matais Romero Avendano, Oaxaca, Mexico, May 4, 2018. The caravan, organized by the immigrant advocacy group Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders), is attempting to travel from Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala, through the country to the northern border with the United States. The group was stalled in Matais Romero Avendano following political pressure. 📸 @brett_gundlock for @nytimes. #BorealCollective #NamaraReps #EverydayMexico #EverydayLatinAmerica #NYTAssignment #Mexico #Oaxaca at Oaxaca, Mexico
