Cold Kisses

A married Inuit couple shares a kiss in the settlement of Umingmaktok in the far reaches of Canada's Northwest Territories. This picture originally appeared in the November 1977 issue in a story about the settlement. But by the 2016 Census, the settlement had been completely abandoned.
