Since 2004, Montreal-based photographer + videographer Eamon Mac Mahon has spent up to three months of each year working in northern Canada and Alaska. These slow journeys, often taken via bush-plane or boat, have allowed him an intimate perspective on the North American wilderness and many of the isolated communities within it. Mac Mahon's photographs have appeared in various publications including the Walrus, National Geographic, and the New Yorker, as well as exhibition spaces such as the Griffin Museum of Photography, Higher Pictures NYC and San Jose's Institute of Contemporary Art. His video work has been exhibited at The Power Plant, The Detroit Institute of the Arts, and the Music Gallery in Toronto. A large-scale, year-long exhibition of his Landlocked series was presented at Toronto's Pearson International Airport. Mac Mahon also spends much of his time creating video projections for stage productions. He has been named one of PDN's 30, published in three of Magenta's 'Flash Forward' books, and nominated for the Prix Pictet.
