2015 TMAC Awards - Best People Photo - Nuu-chah-nulth Dancer 1We’re delighted that this photo of Nuu-chah-nulth dancer, Timmy Masso, from the Pacific Rim chapter of Emily Carr’s BC (Book One): Vancouver Island, was awarded Gold for Best People Photo of 2015 by TMAC, the Travel Media Association of Canada. Timmy, who is wearing a kingfisher mask carved by his brother (artist-to-watch Hjalmer Westob), performed a segment of a dance that tells the background story of his family. Thanks to Emily Carr leading author Laurie Carter on the most fascinating journey’s around British Columbia, she met the brothers at the Kwisitis Visitor Centre at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. This is Carter’s ninth TMAC award.
