The Other End of the Rainbow

The women who have disappeared along Canada’s Highway 16

Kourtney’s will be joining us virtually in the Glo Lounge to share the details of her recently published book with us. Winner of the special mention in the Luma Rencontres d’Arles Book Dummy Award, The Other End of the Rainbow raises awareness of the women and girls who go missing along the ‘Highway of Tears’ – stretches of picturesque but sequestered landscapes within British Columbia’s Far North.

Kourtney’s haunting photographs, which are saturated with the absence of their subjects, amplify the silence which surrounds these largely unsolved disappearances.

We haven’t seen the book yet – it’s on its way – but we’ll have a copy available to browse at the festival.

“I had been told tales of such brutality and horror that my thoughts spiralled into a vortex of paranoia and fear.”
