Sea Winter Salmon


Sea Winter Salmon
is presented by the Seattle office of Ascent Private Capital Management and curated by the Elizabeth Leach Gallery. Photographer and author Mari Hill Harpur has documented the majestic St. John River on the Lower North Shore of Quebec, Canada, and its relationship to the Atlantic salmon that swim its waters. Sea Winter Salmon Chronicles of the St. John River is the title of Hill Harpur’s book, a family memoir and a guide to a river’s ecology documented through photographs, diaries, maps, scientific data and other archival sources.

Through her photography and conservation advocacy, Mari Hill Harpur maintains and protects the extraordinary legacy of the Hill family, their love of fishing and their remarkable contributions to the St. John River area. In her book, Hill Harpur combines history, biography and biology by recording and celebrating her family’s history, the people of the region and their special relationship to the river.

    Mari Hill Harpur was born in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1949. She always wanted to be an artist, and her parents encouraged her interest in photography. In 1965 they helped build her first darkroom in a linen closet. She moved to Canada in 1967 and graduated with a BA in 1971 from Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, Quebec.

    Hill Harpur has had two parallel careers, one as a photographer and the other as a businesswoman in the fields of forestry, farming and land management. She combines her business interests with travel and photography to produce images that capture the natural environment and land use. She has had over thirty photographic exhibitions internationally. Her recent work portrays large landscapes and deer in their habitats in Minnesota, Canada and New Zealand. Hill Harpur and her husband Doug manage the family fishing camp on the St. John River.
