Baffin Island Photographs of Montie Ritchie

Baffin Island Exhibition

Now Open- Dec 2020* (dates are subject to change)

Acting as a photographer and mountaineer for a 1950 scientific expedition to the Canadian Arctic, Montie Ritchie produced a rich visual document of Baffin Island. From spectacular landscapes to expedition members at work to the everyday events of camp life, Ritchie’s photographs include scenes that were familiar only to the island’s native residents. The Baffin Island photographs form part of the Ritchie papers, donated to the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum by his daughter, Cornelia Ritchie, in 2019. A small selection of this unique work is reproduced in this exhibition, providing a window into the many-faceted life of a man who experienced the world but called Texas his home.
