2022 was one of the most productive and unique years for me as a professional photographer. With two dreary years of pandemic restrictions finally a thing of the past, my urge to capture the supernatural beauty of British Columbia was overwhelming.
I travelled to the west coast of Vancouver Island to capture the most western vistas in Canada. A primordial slice of heaven where the Pacific Ocean relentlessly pounds the west coast of North America with surf and rain.
I found myself trapped for eight hours south of Lillooet, BC, in my first avalanche as I chased the Fraser River as it neared its seasonal crest.
Then, I visited Vidette Lake and the Center of the Universe in late September. A spiritual spot miraculously spared the devastation of the 2021 Sparks Lake mega-fire. The largest forest fire in British Columbia in over a century and, at 900 square kilometres, the eleventh largest in Canada’s history. The sacred silence of the devastated forest surrounding Vidette Lake taught me that focusing my camera with tear-filled eyes presented a unique photographic challenge.
This catalogue contains ten of my favourite black-and-white photos captured during those journeys. Each numbered print is available for purchase and is limited to twelve copies printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag® acid- and lignin-free archival paper. This paper, popular in the fine art photography community, reproduces the deep black-and-white tonal range and longevity I felt each captured moment deserves. The prints are signed by yours truly and include an embossed certificate of authenticity.
