Rediscover Coleman

In early October, I spent a weekend busting around the Crowsnest Pass in something of a dry run for the Gushul Residency next summer.  Here's a quick sampler of images I was able to grab.  A longer, more contemplative stay would also include images of the Hillcrest Mine Disaster Park and Cemetary, the ranching country west of Maycroft, and Canada's best answer to the Turqouise Trail between Albequerque to Santa Fe:  the road through Beaver Mines down to Castle Mountain.  Enjoy.

Jack Neary --  Tarifena Dream

Tarifa, Spain is the southernmost point on continental Europe and is situated where the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea meet. Just a few miles across Gibraltar Strait lies Africa. An ancient fishing port first settled by the Romans, it fell to Moorish conquerors in 710. To this day the Moorish influence is seen and felt throughout the town and Andalusia. Tarifa is famous for its wind and is recognized as the world capital of windsports. I lived there for half a year. What golden days. Each day I would set out on foot to explore. What I found was a feast for my camera. ¡Disfrutar!

I'm a photographer, inspired by the beauty that surrounds us in the natural world. The images in this series were all shot on 35mm film* using my father's first film camera, an Olympus Om-1.  I created this work while the two of us drove the back roads of Alberta and Saskatchewan together – he, the driver and me the passenger. We would hit the road in the early morning without a destination in mind but with a mutual goal shared: to stop for anything interesting. 

 

This body of work is what interested me. 

* Shot on Kodak Portra 400 and Ilford HP5 PLUS 400.   For more, see: www.wildeyed.ca

When Jeff was 8 years old, he was part of a 4H wood working group that was teaching them all how to make a picture frame from scratch. The assignment didn't stop there though, they were also instructed to fill the frame with a 4x6 photo that they took themselves.  He remembers it as if it was yesterday, he grabbed his mother's point and shoot 35mm camera, stepped out on the front deck, and took one photo of the Saskatchewan sunset.  He remembers waiting a week before he could go into town to get it developed and another week before he could pick it up.  To him the photo was perfect.  To this day, 34 years later, that blurry yet surprisingly composed well photo still finds its place in the frame that he made and on his Mom's wall for everyone to see.

Today, Jeff has found himself photographing many different subjects, in many different countries but one of his favourites is the Creston, B.C. landscapes and real estate photography in the Kootenays.

"I'm not sure what it is that I'm saying through my photography.  The photos themselves are quests, and all-too often approximations at best, but I think they do speak, and I'm honoured if someone hears them."
