It was a brutally cold morning as I came across these two leaves frozen in time, alone and forgotten.

The new Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an architectural wonder built on the Forks National Historic Site in Winnipeg. Scheduled to open to the public on September 20, 2014, the Museum is certain to be a popular destination for tourists from around the world.
American architect Antoine Predock's concept of the Museum was heavily influenced by the Canadian landscape. Elements such as prairie skies, northern lights, snow, icebergs, tree roots and bird wings featured prominently in the design, as well as elements of Canadian culture.
I spent many hours this summer and fall capturing different views of the CMHR for various clients from different angles, various vantage points, at different times of the day and in different seasons. Being such an interesting building, it offers tremendous potential for photography. The weather alone provides such diverse imagery.
In the fall, I was commissioned by the German company 'Gartner Steel and Glass' who provided the principal materials for the 'cloud'. I covered a lot of territory walking about to capture wide angle views of the building in the context of the city skyline as well as capturing more intimate and abstract details of the architecture. If you think the exterior is something to behold, wait until you see the inside! I am looking forward to photographing the interiors in the very near future.
