Huge congratulations to Mason Mantla, selected for my Year-Long Mentorship for Northerners. Mason is a photographer and filmmaker from Behchoko, Northwest Territories on Tli Cho First Nation territory.
I’ve known Mason for a few years now and watched him develop as a filmmaker. I’ve also seen his love for photography grow while he captures life with his family and friends in Behchoko and Yellowknife. Mason’s love for his community and culture is infectious, and I’m really looking forward to working with Mason over the next 12 months. Keep an eye on Mason - he’s doing great things for the North!
