Some sandy bluffs down on the Thompson River near Ashcroft BC.
Taken this past spring/summer on an epic photo drive from Merritt to Logan Lake and up to Ashcroft.
Uncorrected, dirty and hairy. Polaroid Chocolate.
Built in 1876 by Rev. George Murray and the people of Nicola shortly after he settled there.
Previous to that he was the only presbyterian minister in the interior of BC.
Ministering a circuit covering 600 miles, entirely by horseback. Polaroid Chocolate
One end of a giant tailings pond at Twentyfour Mile Lake, between Logan Lake and Ashcroft BC. If you look closely you can see bulldozers and excavators working on this end of the banks. The lake itself is like the surface of another planet, the far end of the lake is the Highland Valley copper mine.
There are 5 or 6 of these old cars rotting in the woods near a small lake on Vancouver Island. My family took me out there because they thought I might want to shoot it. Thanks fam! Minor overlaps. Horizon.
I was lucky enough to meet Ian Ruhter, Will Eichelberger, Lane Power and Madeline Druce when they brought the Silver and Light project to Vancouver this past spring. This was an exhibition held in their rental house, to display the gigantic wet plate photos they took while in Vancouver. Pretty inspiring stuff.
Sorry the flare burned out your face from the backlight, Ian. I needed a bounce or something.
I had one more with a little more face detail, but the double art/ double Dano made this the winner.
Check out the photos Ian and his friends make here: http://ianruhter.tumblr.com/
Videos about the project, shot mainly by Lane Power (I believe) here: http://vimeo.com/39578584
