In 2007 a group of Yellowknife artists developed a photography mentorship program for the Arctic Winter Games. With the success of the program it was decided to broaden the idea of mentoring young photographers by taking the mentorship program to communities throughout the Northwest Territories. To facilitate this effort the Frozen Eyes Photographic Society was created in the spring of 2008.
Since then FEPS has generously received funds from BHP Billiton, the Northwest Territories Arts Council and the Department of Canadian Heritage. Such funding has assisted us to start our program in the communities of the Northwest Territories.
The hope is that the youth will share with us their vision, and give us a glimpse of how it is for them, in their world.
