The Remarkable People project is a selection of over 200 images shot over three years in and around the beautiful Bulkley Valley in northern British Columbia. The project seeks to capture the spirit of the people who call this place home, and who together make this a truly fascinating place to live. A book by the same title and accompanying exhibition will take place at the Smithers Art Gallery between April 6th and May 8th 2021.
