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

LANDSCAPE, CONISTON, ONTARIO
Sorting through my old negatives I dfound a series of pictures I took in 1989 during a phototrip to Coniston near Sudbury, Ontario. The landscape was quite sparse, lacking trees which had disappeared from the landscape because of the mining activities in the Sudbury area. Since that time big changes have taken place with reforestation of the Sudbury landscape. But at the time it was a great place for photographers. The rock formation were impressive and actually quite colourful. The original negatives were made on colur negative film, however I am still quite interested in the graphic aspects of black and white photography and the strong forms and textures made the landscape eminently interesting for a photographer interested in classic black and white images.
