IN FOCUS

    I begin the year 2015 with a presentation to the Manitoba Camera Club about 'The Built Environment'. Most of you are familiar with my nature portfolio but few have probably seen my architectural imagery that I have made of the built environment. Through my 19 year career as a full-time professional photographer, I have created a considerable and, I believe, a significant body of work around architecture. From my first architectural assignment documenting The Canadian Science Centre for Human and Animal Health in 1996 to photographing the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for a recent Canada Post stamp in 2014, I have been commissioned by some of the most important architectural firms in Winnipeg.

    So, for something completely different, join me this coming Tuesday evening, January 6, 2015 at 7 PM at the Lions Club of Winnipeg building, 610 Portage Avenue (in the Winnipeg Foundation Auditorium). If you are not a camera club member but would like to attend, simply let me know and I will admit you as one of my SPECIAL guests! Hope to see you there!

    I was recently in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on assignment, the first time since last winter when I created the final set of images for the Canada Post stamp which was released last month. On this assignment, I created some interior photos of the space featuring the glass 'cloud'. I also captured a few exterior images at dusk and with the full moon rising behind it. I was 'tickled pink' to see my stamp and First Day Issue Envelope mounted and framed on one of the interior walls.

    'Canadian Museum For Human Rights' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The Canadian Museum For Human Rights finally opened to the public today on September 20, 2014!

    The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an architectural wonder designed by American architect Antoine Predock. He was inspired by Canadian landscapes such as the vast prairie skies, northern lights, snow and ice, as well as Canadian cultures, including Indigenous cultures. The form of the building was also influenced by images of icebergs, tree roots and out-stretched wings. This national and international destination was established to explore the issue of human rights, focusing on the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. The Museum was built in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the first such national museum to be built outside the National Capital Region in nearly half a century. A Canadian postage stamp was issued to commemorate the opening of the Museum in September of 2014.

    PS: I was fortunate to be commissioned to produce the 'two' images on the postage stamp, including the images for the First Day Issue Envelope and the stamp Booklet.

    'Winnipeg Skyline at Sunrise' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    "The Winnipeg skyline, seen from the east, features two iconic architectural structures: the Canadian Museum For Human Rights, designed by American architect Antoine Predock and the Esplanade Riel pedestrian bridge designed by Winnipeg architect Étienne Gaboury. The bridge crosses the Red River and connects downtown Winnipeg and Saint-Boniface, Canada’s largest French speaking community beyond Quebec.

    The ‘Belt of Venus’, an atmospheric phenomenon seen just before sunrise or after sunset, glows bright pink above the darker blue layer known as the ‘Earth’s Shadow’. This pink glow, also known as an ‘anti-twilight arch’, extends some 10-20 degrees above the horizon and is caused by a backscattering of reddish light from the rising or setting sun".

    Canada's newest museum - the Canadian Museum for Human Rights - is poised to open this week. After more than a decade of construction, the Museum will open its doors on Saturday, September 20 as the City of Winnipeg and the Province of Manitoba welcome guests and tourists from all over the world. This architectural icon and state-of-the-art museum, designed by Antoine Predock and constructed by PCL, features prominently on the city's skyline. I am looking forward to finally seeing the completed exhibits.
