The closing reception was a big success. Thanks for everyone who came out to support it!
The Burnt Trees Project is a visual documentation of photographs, design and installation showing the lifelessness and regrowth since the 2005 fire in Kootenay National Park. The destruction along Highway 93 inspired an awareness for how interesting damaged trees could be. The images produced in our 4 season collective reveals a panorama, depictions of new growth and the surrounding landscapes.
Today, Ellis and I drove two hours from Calgary to photograph burnt trees left from a lightning store in 2003. It burned 170 square kilometers (12% of Kootenay National Park) in 40 days. Here is a photo of our new project, “Burnt Trees”.
