Re-energized! Re-examining! Revealing!
I have been busy working on a number of projects – commercial and personal – but have been pretty lax about sharing what’s up lately. As I populate my main website with new stories and collections, I plan to re-invigorate this blog with photography, too. Taking some time away from the relentless battle against the Instagram algorithm, I hit pause in the new year and have been doing my own thing again. This blog and my site, along with Flickr, are dedicated spaces to see my work online. Consider my IG profile an archive of 2000+ images for the time being. We’ll see if I’m drawn back to that space or not…
Speaking of archiving, that’s been a big part of my life lately, too. Re-editing older projects with fresh eyes is very exciting! Expect to see more from my digital collection — 200,000+ images from the past 14 years. Prints, scans and slides are on top of that. It’s…a lot. But I love it. Not only do I take photos for a living, I shoot when I’m on break, too. It’s a career and a passion, something I am grateful for most days.
As a welcome back – to you and I – here are two shots from one of the best times in my life: my travels around Argentina and Chile with my love, Sandra. I passed over these images on my initial edit 12 years ago. The top shot is from a place outside Barreal, Argentina called the Pampa del Leoncito – a dry lake bed renowned for land-sailing and sky-gazing. The bottom shot is the approach to the Pampa, with the massive Cordillera de Ansilta – seven peaks in the Andes reaching up to 5900m – forming an impressive backdrop. That’s Cerro Mercedario dead ahead at 6720m. Along with Aconcagua further down, these are the biggest mountains I’ve ever seen!
If you haven’t already, please take a look at my previous post featuring framed prints, now on sale! Haven’t you always wanted some original artwork from a notable Canadian photographer* on your wall? I like to think so! Please let me know if you are interested in any of the specials.
* A notable contemporary Niddrie that is ;)
