“Rangers John and Steven Ukuqtunnuaq and Simon Tucktoo, King William Island,” a photograph from the series Arctic Front by Philip Cheung, whose work is on view this week at Circuit Gallery, in Toronto. 

In this series, Cheung documents the Canadian Rangers, a part-time military unit comprised largely of Indigenous volunteers. At a time when Canada’s far north is rapidly warming because of climate change, there is increased  international interest in control of the  Northwest  Passage’s ice-free  shipping routes and the abundant natural resources in the region.

“Nowadays, most states let just about anybody who wants a concealed-handgun permit have one; in seventeen states, you don’t even have to be a resident. Nobody knows exactly how many Americans carry guns, because not all states release their numbers, and even if they did, not all permit holders carry all the time. But it’s safe to assume that as many as 6 million Americans are walking around with firearms under their clothes.”
