TITLE - "Winter Was Hard"
WHERE - Pitt Meadows, B.C. (2016)

Whatever else we might imagine of Heaven, we would all expect to find it soothingly beautiful, and we would all expect to find it comfortably warm, not bone-chillingly cold. So to find beauty in coldly remote places is to evoke, for most viewers,  emotions that are in tension, feelings of both attraction and repulsion entangled together.  The images in this gallery have been created for this purpose: they aim to help awaken a fresh sense of the beautiful, liberated from beauty's conventionally cozy and comforting ambiance.
