The Markup: Capturing Yellowknife’s Range Street

The best long-form journalism involves a lot of red ink. An editor’s corrections, cuts, and revisions often go unseen by the public. Here at The Markup, our job is to dissect their choices.  

 

 

Episode 2: Capturing Yellowknife’s Range Street

Yellowknife’s 50th Street has many names. Strange Range, the Gold Range, or simply Range Street. Lonely Planet’s guidebook to Yellowknife once called it “the Gaza Strip of Canada.”But locals say otherwise.

In 2012, photographer Pat Kane sought to capture Range Street through a photo series and documentary. In the process, he confronted a challenge familiar to many journalists – how do you tell the story of a place that is often misunderstood by the media? Kane joined The Markup to talk about his process.

 

Featuring:
Pat Kane, Yellowknife-based photojournalist
Jeffrey Dvorkin, director of U of T’s Journalism Program and a veteran broadcaster
Jesse Winter, Toronto Star reporter, formerly with Yellowknifer

 

The Markup is written and produced by Erica Ngao, Brennan Doherty, Abby Plener and Dylan Freeman-Grist, and fact-checked by Stephanie Hughes.
