That is the press release I received for being one of the winners of this years PX3 photography competition. I have to say finding out was humorous. My colleague and friend David Ellingsen congratulated me whilst I was sipping a coffee at Gene Cafe, but I had not heard anything official about an award so it took me by surprise. David seemed pretty chipper and I was just waking up. I think it was about 9:00am. After the coffee and the news sank I have to say I feel very lucky and grateful to be a winner at PX3. There are so many good photographers. I am fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world that constantly and effortlessly provides me with inspiration, meaning and a sense of mystery that transcends myself and my time here on earth. The Mythologies series was helped by many along the way and I want to thanx the main culprits now: Amanda Daniel, Lu Kamenov, Ambrose Merrell, Miss Jody, Bobo, Sea Sha, Skippy Skye, Panther, Kyra and the Snuffleupagus.
Below is the artist statement and a link to some of the photos.
“The Mythologies series is an ongoing exploration of motifs found in the coastal areas of British Columbia. What I have added to the photographic process is a way of exploring an inner monologue and personal dimensions not often made visible in the real world. Through the ongoing development and building of these photographs I have discovered the world outside and the world inside share similar aspects and require similar treatments. Those qualities include, solitude, quiet, slow movement, patience, and often return visits to the same places to become familiar with their true depth and meaning”.
