Returning Home

Date: Jan 24, 2019

February celebrates Alberta's Exposure Photography Festival. Returning Home is a new body of work featuring the homesteads of Alberta's past.
 
Kris Schofield is an Ontario born Finnish-Canadian photographer based out of Calgary, Alberta. Specializing in minimalist, black and white photography, Schofield focuses heavily on dark, negative space, giving a whisper of light to his subject. In doing this, he draws not just the emotions of the viewer out, but shows the viewer what he was feeling.  Through the beauty within the stark prairie landscape that is so predominant here in Alberta he has found his voice.
 
“There are the beacons of old prairie pride that can be seen for miles. Then there are those in deep within the fields, down impassable roads, collapsing under their own weight. The houses and farms that nature has taken over are returning home, back to the earth. “
 
The show runs from February 5 - March 2.  Please join us for the artist reception Friday March 8 from 6:00 - 9:00pm.
