Stunning nature photography is paired with evocative writing that combine to explore the history of the Broughton Archipelago and expose some of the lesser known practises of government and industry in this dynamic coastal landscape.

Converging Waters explores an area on the northern coast of Vancouver Island on the edge of the Broughton Archipelago: Queen Charlotte Strait, Broughton Strait, Cormorant Channel, Blackfish Sound. This part of the Namgis First Nation territory is characterized by tree-covered islands, pebble beaches, foggy mornings, rocky islets, orcas, eagles, and an ever-changing light. Boats are at least as important as trucks for the few who live here. The sea and sky dominate the land, and marine mammals and fish seem to overshadow the human residents.

Daniel Hillert’s inspiring photographs focus on the wild essence that still permeates these converging waters, while Gwen Curry’s prose dives beneath the surface to appreciate not only the natural wonder of this place but its history, people, and present-day challenges.
