I have family across the border in Vancouver, BC. Recently, the immediate family took a trip up to visit the extended family, and Dad got sent up a day early to relax with his sister for 24 hours, kid-free.
I've been visiting Vancouver for 40 years, and even went to school there for a year in.. well, a very very long time ago indeed. I have a strong impression of the place, which isn't really what it is today, but it's an impression. The attached photos were shot mostly in an afternoon, with a few fill-ins over the next couple of days. The fact that this was done at speed is not an excuse. This portfolio is what it is, no excuses from me.
I'm posting these here because I haven't really got an endpoint in mind for this. There's probably going to be some sort of hardcopy. I might do a blurb thing, I will probably hand build a limited edition thing.
I've imbued this collection with a lot of meaning and ideas. Who knows what you'll get out, though. It's not a test, there's no reason you need to get anything out, or if you do that it be what I put in. This is for your enjoyment and entertainment. Comment however you like, but be advised that this is a completed project. If you think I should crop something or other differently, feel free to let me know, but it won't change that photo. I might learn something, though.
Repetitions and sizing are deliberate. Best viewed, I think, by clicking the first picture and using the pager that pops up. That was my intent with the giant white "mat" backgrounds, to give a book-like experience.
