Canadian Photography

During my late teens I worked as an infantry officer in the Canadian Army. The commitments of the job made it difficult to paint and draw consistently, and so I shifted my creative focus on developing and refining my interest in landscape photography.

This collection of six photos is an important reference point in the development of my digital photography, foreshadowing my consistent focus on bleak, unsaturated scenery and the sculptural oddities of urban and suburban life.

Canada, outside the boundaries of its Northern expanse, is a land blessed with nearly endless reserves of post-cultural suburban anxiety.
