The Canadian High Arctic Research Station is set to open in the summer of 2017. To assess the progress, and talk with those who are helping to bring the ambitious project together, photographer Paul Colangelo travelled north to Cambridge Bay with writer Alex Hutchinson.
While there, they met with Dr. Martin Raillard, chief scientist at the Canadian High Arctic Research Station. Dr. Raillard has spent much of his career working in the Canadian Arctic and lived and raised his family in Arctic for 12 years.
They also met Angulalik Pedersen, a technical assistant at Polar Canada, and Eric Hoberg, a senior researcher at the Animal Parasitic Diseases Laboratory at the United States Department of Agriculture, both of whom Colangelo captured in the photos above.
