Self-taught photographer and pencil artist Gerald Kuehl
was born in Ontario and grew up in the community of Pinawa,
northeast of Winnipeg. After studying at the University of
Manitoba, he rediscovered his high school passion—drawing—
and has since refi ned it into an astonishing craft. In 1997, a
fortuitous trip to the First Nations community of Manigotagan,
Manitoba, set in motion a twenty-two-year project that took the
artist to the remote corners of the province, and ultimately, deep
into the northernmost Canadian territory—Nunavut.
Kuehl’s works have been showcased across the country. He has
two grown sons and lives in Winnipeg with his wife, Sara.
