Building cultural understanding through storytelling
From 2015 through 2018, Jennifer focused on the power of personal stories from the global Arctic.
Her project, Meet the North, will take you beyond the news headlines to find stories of modern Arctic culture. It’s about listening to northern people and building relationships.
Wherever she went, Jennifer asked each person she met for a recommendation on who to meet next. One introduction at a time, she found stories that southern audiences would never expect.
For three years, this was a collaboration with photographer Eric Guth. Jennifer and Eric spent many months in the field together listening, learning, and gathering stories.
