"Intriguing subjects as 'other' or 'existing in another realm entirely',

all while demonstrating a splendid grasp of technique and atmosphere"

Aspens installation

In June 2015 a 90ft (27m) long installation made of my Aspen trees photographs from Wyoming appeared alongside a construction site in downtown Toronto (Bay and Wellesley area), thanks to PATCH initiative. Shortly after, other photographers took this as a core idea and started to pop their art up on the construction walls here and there. One of them literally duplicated the idea with his forest at one of the city's main intersections. It was exciting to be amongst the first ones and to inspire others. My installation stayed up till March 2016, when the construction of the sight was completed.
