The camera is my tool. Through it I give reason to everything around me.

AGRIDOME, BONFIELD, ONTARIO
Jim Dow is a photographer, whose work I really enjoy. I feel an affinity with his images from the book Marking The Land, in which he documents the folkart in the North Dakota landscape. Traveling around Northern Ontario you find the same type of subjects in the Ontario landscape and , just as Jim Dow did in Northern Dakota, I photograph the same type of subject matter before it all disappears.
