George Legrady
From August 13th 1973 to September 2nd 1973
Fort George

"Fort George, in wake of the James Bay Project; Fort George, Quebec, an island on the coast of James Bay. Population : 1,700. Inhabited by 1,400 Eastern Cree Indians, 16 Metis families, 70 Eskimoes. Approximately 100 Ehites, who are mostly in temporary residence, in charge of : the Hudson’s Bay store, the restaurant, the Catholic church, the residential school, the federal school, the airport, the motel, the new Hydro-Quebec camps. The Indians are responsible for the post office and the band office. […] This portfolio of photographs was collected in a seven day stay in the town of Fort George, Quebec, on the eastern bank of the James Bay. The purpose was to gather visual information about the people and their way of life. The interest came about because of a concern for the Indians and Metis, who have been living peacefully in a natural habitat to be changed soon by the invasion of the Hydro Quebec people for the opening of the new (road?) from Matagami."
