Photos by Richard Harrington in Inukjuak (eastern Canadian Arctic) of the Padlemiut tribe. They were taken in 1947, just as the canadian government was abandoning its Arctic policy of benign neglect, to use a Nixonian phrase, and shifting to one of largely forced settlement and relocation. From the Qikiqtani Truth Commission.

Vintage Crime Scene Photographs from LAPD
Until recently, an old, deteriorated collection of no less than one million crime scene photographs rested silently in the nearly forgotten archives of the Los Angeles Police department; spanning 150 years of violence and corruption, these images were only recently discovered by the photographer Merrick Morton, who has restored and salvaged many of the images, which will be exhibited at Paramount Pictures Studios from April 25-27 by Fototeka.
