Wim Tewinkel


Born in the Netherlands, Wim Tewinkel studied forestry in Holland, spent three years in Kenya and then immigrated to Canada. As well as a forester, he is a notable photographer. He has spent the last twenty years working with the First Nations people of the Lilleoot-Pemberton area of British Columbia. From his friendships with the native elders and his interest in photography came the book Salish Elders.
