Untitled Landscape Alberta Spring 2020

The project

This series of images was shot in Calgary and Kananaskis Country, Alberta, in June 2020. Using a simple plastic medium-format camera with black and white film, the overlapping images were created “in camera” using multiple exposures. The images were then developed using my darkroom set-up at home in Calgary. Normally I would be at my house, near the Pyrenees, in France, but this year the pandemic made that impossible. Exploring the natural landscape of Alberta during this time of social isolation has kept me sane. The mountains put time in perspective. There’s a patience that comes with using old cameras, something we all need now.
