  • As a photojournalist, our job is to take pictures that tell stories.  If those photos evoke emotion in the viewer, then better yet.  The photo that moves me the most this past year is that of Bradley Bone, the 16-year-old pall bearer at Tina Fontaine's funeral who stepped outside his comfort zone to give her one last hug goodbye. On Aug. 23, I attended Tina Fontaine's funeral in Sagkeeng First Nation. After the formal service was over, the six pallbearers, all cousins of Tina, had gathered around her casket quietly, waiting for the hearse to arrive. Bradley Bone, one of the pallbearers, referred to Tina as his 'little sister.'  I had asked the family ahead of time if I could photograph Tina's final journey and they agreed. It was during this time of waiting that Bradley, unable to hold back his emotions any longer, made a bold move to say goodbye in his own way to Tina by wrapping his arms around her coffin and laying his body across its case. It was an impromptu show of affection that happened so quickly, I barely caught a few frames on my camera. There wasn't any time to analyze my position, check the lighting, or even crop the photo. The heartfelt display of emotion was quick, raw and fleeting; I couldn't risk missing it by moving. As the family could not have an open casket funeral due to her being pulled from the damaging waters of the Red River and the monstrous crime committed against her, the closest Bradley could get to her to say goodbye, one last time, was to hug her casket. This image to me is symbolic, for as this teenage boy wrapped his arms around his little cousin one last time, so too has a nation wrapped their arms around the issue of murdered and missing aboriginal women in our nation.  - Ruth Bonneville
