Front Street - Kotzebue

by Witmer, Dennis



Just north of the Arctic Circle sits Kotzebue, a town of the Inupiat people that has endured for over a century. In this compelling visual essay, Dennis Witmer captures scenes on its Front Street, the main thoroughfare whose buildings have evolved from the sod huts of Native cultures to wood and concrete edifices. From front yards with parked snowmachines to townspeople peacefully strolling down sidewalks, the striking black-and-white images in Front Street, Kotzebue offer a thought-provoking view of life in the Arctic and people's methods of coexisting with nature.
