Two of those photographers are Paul Colangelo and David duChemin


Paul Colangelo is a documentary photographer with a focus on environmental issues and wildlife.

For the past five years, he has focused on a long-term project that explores a shift in Canadian values—for generations, our vast wilderness has been a celebrated part of our national identity, but over the past decade, a seismic shift in national values has resulted in this wilderness being viewed as a stockpile of natural resources. To tell this large, sweeping story, Paul has focused on wildlife and cultural hotspots across Canada that are affected by the expanding resource industry. Clients include National Geographic, Orion, Canadian Geographic, and Maclean’s. Paul was recently included among PDN’s 30 and he is a member of the International League of Conservation Photographers
