Webby Nominations: God’s Lake

The Webby nominees fill the spectrum from funny to socially sharp and creatively inventive. But a powerful use of photography for an interactive about life on a Canadian reservation caught our attention.

The Webbys announced the nominated shortlist highlighted in this video. But check out this website called God’s Lake Narrows, created by the National Film Board of Canada and shortlisted to one of five for the ‘Best Use of Photography’ category.

This is an awesome piece of visual storytelling about identity, community and social stereotypes by Winnipeg artist Kevin Lee Burton. Sometimes only the stillness of photography enables the image to truly bear witness.
