Photographer Richard Johnson Captures the Rustic Beauty of Canada's Ice Fishing Huts

Photographer Richard Johnson, has spent much of the last eight years traveling across Canada to photograph the primitive, portable shelters people use for ice fishing on lakes and bays. Faux wood paneling, sheet metal, tarpaulins, peak roofs, modified camping trailers all fulfill the requirements for shelter. “It is architecture at its most primitive level,” he told The New York Times, “It’s shelter. It’s portable. It’s made by the owners of the hut. It’s not pretentious. It is a solution. Every single person needs heat.”
