Jimmy Manning

Jimmy Manning (b. Kimmirut (Lake Harbour), NU, 1951) is a self-taught photographer based in Kinngait (Cape Dorset). Manning’s primary medium is photography, but he also makes drawings, prints and carvings. He is grandson to photographer Peter Pitseolak, his earliest inspiration. Manning’s work explores day-to-day life in his community, creatively documenting landscapes and gatherings of family and friends. He strives to capture scenes and emotions that reflect how Inuit culture actively thrives and changes. Manning was formerly a member of the Inuit Art Foundation Board of Directors, and his photographs are included in the collections of the Canadian Museum of History, Gatineau, QC, and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, Montréal, QC.
