À LA PÊCHE AUX BELLES CABANES DU CANADA | By Fanny Arlandis | May 6, 2016

«Je suis un photographe d’architecture. Je photographie des objets et des bâtiments mais pour moi les cabanes des pêcheurs au Canada constituent la forme la plus basique d’architecture. Elles sont transportables, construites par leur propriétaire et ont toutes le même but: protéger du vent. Elles sont toutes similaires et en même temps toutes différentes», raconte le photographe canadien Richard Johnson. Depuis environ dix ans, il parcourt son pays pendant l’hiver pour photographier cette tradition centenaire.

Ice Huts Tour 2016

By Richard Johnson.

While people in Ontario were experiencing an unusually mild winter, I returned to my favorite ice fishing spots where blowing snow and -25 degree temperatures are guaranteed.

At La Baie des Ha!Ha!, Saguenay River, I discovered that the ice village is continuing to grow every year which requires a certain order and planning. The huts are positioned on ice roads, laid out with address posts, keeping everyone safe on the ice. Which brings a good challenge to find the right view point that shows the scale of the village with hundreds of huts. Rather than using a drone or helicopter to get above the bay, I climbed the adjacent mountain and got some good overall images that show the scale of this phenomenon.

Lac-St-Jean (Quebec) :: There were three large villages on the ice. One at Métabetchouan, Roberval and St-Félicien, and oddly enough there is no fishing. The old fishing huts and trailers are brought together in a circle forming a community with recreational playgrounds for families where there is skating, hockey, bonfires, and all sorts of winter activities.

             

Péribonka, Lac-St-Jean (Quebec) :: First discovery of a teepee and an igloo after nine years of travelling coast-to-coast. For me, it was a real confirmation that I have seen all architectural forms applied to ice fishing.

     

St-Anne-de-la-Pérade (Quebec) :: A favorite place that I stop in every year and this year was no disappointment. The sky is full of wires that brings electricity to the rental huts, a visual delight.

Toronto-based photographer Richard Johnson has documented these architectural gems for the last nine years, photographing more than 850 ice huts in the process, and capturing an evolving icon of Canada’s winter landscape.
