VANCOUVER BOOK of PHOTOGRAPHS from the COLLECTION
Coming in the Fall of 2017 - an 11" x 11" hardcover book of photographs and selected memories of Vancouver.
This body of work began as an exploration into the city of my birth. I have a romantic view of Vancouver which is coloured by my parents stories from their ‘youth’. They met during World War II and began their relationship in Vancouver. During the war, my mom worked on Catalina Airplanes and after the war worked in various jobs including as a housekeeper at the Hotel Vancouver. My Father and his parents lived on Cornwall in the heart of Kitsilano, he went to school at UBC while my Mother worked to support them. They frequented Granville Street, the Sylvia Hotel and walked in Stanley Park.
I have continued their tradition of loving and living in Vancouver, returning after some years in England. During my University days I worked summer jobs at various city buildings including the majestic Marine Building on Burrard Street, it was an honour to have spent some time in that grand building. What a wonderful art deco reflection of architecture in our our wild west city. I have more than 100 images in the collection, and the series is growing as I walk in the footsteps of our history.
It's time to collect them into book form, which I intend to independently publish and fund using pre-sales through Indiegogo - a link will be coming soon, the campaign will begin May 16th 2017. If you would like to get on a mailing list for updates please sign up on my contact page. I will be offering an early bird discount for the first 48 hours on Indiegogo so don't wait to be first in line for the best price!
