Ruth Stirling, Collins Gallery, Glasgow The sounds at the Inuit reverberate deep into their culture. Music is rythmic, the language is old. It is a culture which has built the beauty ol simplicity irom the complexities oi tradition and inheritance. But alter thousands oi years survival against the cold and long sunless winters, the media culture which puts TV into their homes and jobs onto their horizons, is rapidly shaking its ioundations, just as surely as whale breaks through ice.

Scottish photographer Ruth Stirling spent some months last year recording that spirit oi Inuit culture which survives-the dreams at sleeping laces, the snug papoose, the shaman throwing open his cloak oi iur to otter a look oi penetrating hope. Without a shadow oi the sense that she might have stolen their souls, Stirling presents these people at the edge at an existence which has made them at one in their land. Eyes closed in sleep, a lace in shadow, a iigure obscured by a drum -these portraits show the subtle vulnerability at a changing culture.

This is no ordinary photography exhibition. Stirling has striven to understand and translate all angles at lnult lite and has split the gallery into three sections. One part has been dropped into the darkness oi winter, leaving the colour portraits to glow in their mounted light boxes like open doors. in contrast, the adjacent section is well-lit and contains the majority oi photographs, both in colour and black and white. In the third section the residents at Igloolik speak tor themselves. Recordings oi interviews on health, the military presence,

map-making, the iamily and education. it is a rare exhibition which manages to tilt magical corners oi culture while at the same time oliering a wealth oi practical research and background knowledge. It is that symmetry oi understanding which makes Stirling's work so penetrating.

Without losing a strong humanity, Stirling's exhibition is strengthened by an objectivity underlined by these research interviews. lithe exhibition reveals an unsettling sense at injustice about the situation in Igloolik, you can be sure that it exists.

Some images are simply uniorgettable. The mother with her

child on her back in deep black and white reilects one oi the lnult conversations next door. Childhood is changing. Schools are breaking down the old ways which made children independent and sure. The new ways have Introduced unemployment and a tile regulated by the clock, both lactors which activate stress related diseases and low sell-esteem. The old ways discussed tile in the womb, the decision to be born and choice at gender as it it were the child’s responsibility irom the lirst-this Is an image which reverberates against all that is ialse in our own society. (Alice Bain)
