In August 1992 Robert Franks good friend and antique dealer Reginald Rankin invited Frank on a trip to Pangnirtung, a village of around 1,300 Inuit inhabitants in the Arctic Circle. This book is Franks documentation of the five-day sojourn. Curiously Frank depicts Pangnirtung void of its people: the still harbour, public housing, a convenience store, a telephone post. Sincere without being sentimental, the photos are shaped by a short text from Frank himself, Prefabricated homes along the main road in Pangnirtung. At times a decorated window reflections inside or outside. Stones maybe the balance of a big sky above.
