Richard Johnson
Ice Huts
Toronto, 2012

“I have always been fascinated with small structures. My earliest recollection of shelter was as a 6 year old growing up in Trinidad. It was a guard house for our neighbour. No more than three walls and a lean to roof, it was a simple solution to shade the harsh sun and protect from tropical rains. These shelters, built by individuals with available materials, inspired me to take notice. (…) The images in this series are dedicated to the resourceful people, engaged in ice fishing culture, making our winter-white landscape a little more colourful and infinitely more interesting.”
