Amanda is a Canadian-born visual ethnographer and environmental practitioner. Having grown up in a town of less than 200 people in northern Alberta, she's most comfortable in small and unusual places. Her academic and documentary work focuses on themes related to culture and connection to place. She has worked for aboriginal groups, government, and co-management boards within the context of resource development and consultation. In 2018, she was named one of the 100 Top Emerging Photographers in the Flash Forward competition by the Magenta Foundation. She currently resides in Yellowknife, N.W.T., where she hopes to add more regional diversity to Canadian documentary voice.
