About this collection

Johnson's Ice Villages Series explores the resilience of ice fishing communities in Canada. Photographed as wide panoramas, each location reveals unique solutions to cultural and geographical differences. 

Located along the lower part of the Saguenay River in Quebec Province, La Baie Des Ha! Ha! is a popular ice fishing destination. The shoreline, acting as a hinge, is constantly cracking and moving while it adjusts to a vertical displacement of 6 feet every 11 hours as a result of local tides.
