KARI MEDIG KARI MEDIG

about






Kari Medig grew up in a cabin in northern British Columbia. His parents drove a '73 Ford Bronco, wore rubber boots and made him go cross-country skiing. They also owned matching Nikon FEs which they used to photograph wild mushrooms and other fungi of the boreal forest. Kari inherited the cameras and started making his own pictures. Here are a few of the notable folks he works with:

In 2015 Powder magazine produced the magazine's first book on Kari's three week journey exploring skiing at stops on Russia's Trans-Siberian Railway.

Kari is especially comfortable in snowy places, steep or flat, foreign or domestic. He's skied to the top of Canada twice. He has a penchant for 120 film, drinks two coffees a day and relates well to folks with beards. He now lives in a house with a yard in Nelson, British Columbia with his partner Emily.
