The show is called “Salt Spring, Real and Imagined”. The images are about spirit of place.
The series has been, and continues to be, inspired by a photograph I made of a heron in Ganges harbour, just after moving to the island with my family in 2004..
The image of the heron felt like a mysterious and timeless sort of "welcome".
That voice, and that which we sense in any given moment, in relationship with our surroundings, beyond what we see, I feel might be coming from the spirit of place.
I printed the series of 34 images on waterproof canvas panels.
