There is opportunity in every day to make it somehow great. Since becoming a father to two young girls, I’ve been drawn back in, happily, to a more carefree world of wonder and playtime. As adults, we often let our more formal responsibilities and hard-nosed cynicism rob us of the joy in simplicity. It becomes a matter of perspective. With my series Great Days, I set out to showcase how certain activities and places are resonant with the potential for joy and can act as a portal of self-discovery for viewers to re-engage with a more limitless potential for happiness. The long exposure slows the scene down and opens it up to more metaphoric possibilities.
I am an artist livng in Vancouver BC. I find myself being drawn to the chaos of filthy streets and the serenity of wide open, empty spaces.
