Tee Pee
Tee PeeWhile walking through the Devonian Botanical Gardens near Devon Alberta Canada I came across this replica of a First Nations teepee in the "Native People's Garden". A two hectare section of the 190 hectare park. It was displayed in such a way that people could gawk at it from a distance like some sort of quaint ancient monument.

Over 100 Mile House
Over 100 Mile HouseAnsel Adams' perfectly crafted photos will always be an integral part of the history of photography. However, his style of "Straight Photography" which he came to champion stands in stark contrast to the dreamy and romantic Pictorialists. Adams' popularity contributed greatly to the downfall of Pictorialism. I couldn't resist taking a jab at this style of picture making (which I've never been fond of) by copying it's clarity and attention to detail and then adding something quirky and fun. I like to think Steiglitz would have approved.

Tsk Tsk (Nothing is Indestructible)
Tsk Tsk (Nothing is Indestructible)The title is reference to the demise of Pictorialism and the impermanence of art movements. I guess this is me shaking my finger at artists who take themselves too seriously
Daisy Study
Daisy StudyAt first blush this image is supposed to appear lyrical and pretty. In reality this daisy is wilted and dying. Rotating the canvas 90 degrees gives it the impression that it's dancing or fluttering whimsically in the breeze. Sometimes viewing an object from a different perspective can give it new life. The Pictorialists loved these sort of visual games.

White Swan
White SwanThis piece is intended to challenge classical notions about what is beautiful. White being associated with purity, I've inverted a black swan making it appear white. I like how, while the image is pretty, something's askew. Had I left the black swan black the image would have been better. Like gilding a lily. Just like my piece "United States P/N" from 2009 it plays off the terms positive and negative. The underlying message about race was not part of the process but I'm not going to deny it exists and I'm happy if anyone chooses to interpret it in that way as well.
