About the Author
David Campion came of age in apartheid South Africa, an experience that gave him a distrust of dominant social mythologies. His work wrestles with notions of power and the means by which it perpetuates itself. His photographs regularly show in galleries and public institutions.
Sandra Shields is a fifth-generation Albertan who grew up on stories of covered wagons and prairie homesteads. She has written about the Stampede for Canadian Geographic, Geist, Reader s Digest and The Boston Globe.
David and Sandra previously collaborated on Where Fire Speaks: A Visit with the Himba (Arsenal Pulp, 2002), which won the BC Book Prize for Nonfiction and The Company of Others: Stories of Belonging (Arsenal Pulp, 2005).
