“Midnight Sun” echoes back to an earlier time, when the arrival of the “big ship” was a grand occasion. In this image, the annual re-supply ship is quietly anchored in the bay at the end of a long, summer day. The red-roofed buildings of the Hudson’s Bay Company are visible in the background, flanked by the summer tents of the Inuit families.

Kananginak has been involved with drawing and printmaking since the late 1950s when the graphic arts program first began at Cape Dorset. Kananginak’s first print, a collaborative image with his father, Pootoogook, was included in the first catalogued collection of Cape Dorset prints in 1959. Since that time, Kananginak’s work has been included in almost every annual collection, and has been interpreted in many different print media — copper engraving, stonecut, stencil, lithography and etching. Kananginak was an accomplished stonecut printmaker himself — in the early years he often proofed and editioned his own work.
