According to Buddha

The New Year has come to greet you with new hopes, new determination, new will-to-achieve, new activities.


MISSION: To promote and exhibit innovative, thoughtful, and provocative photography created by CANADIAN contemporary image makers.

INFOCUS PHOTO is an annual exhibition curated by Alexis Marie Chute. In it’s first year, 2015, the show took place at Harcourt House Artist Run Centre and featured Edmonton and area photographers. In the second year, InFocus expanded to celebrate the best photography from across Alberta, showcased at dc3 Art Projects. Now, in its third installment, InFocus has fulfilled its mission of welcoming submissions from ALL Canadian photographers. This year, 2017, the curated show will be mounted in The Front Gallery. InFocus takes place every February during Exposure Photography Festival.

I am thrilled to be included as an emerging photographer.

Inspired by the theme “The Future” here are my three images that are curated into the 2017 InFocus Photo Exhibit.

        • i learn by looking so when i see and look at images i learn…of course there is more but i see and then what i feel…it’s also all practice for me…but each day i do look for beauty that’s what i do on sloppy anyways…thanks for the thumbs up 😀 it is all fun!

          • for me other images (like you do alway) are inspiring… …no envy at all.. …just pure inspiration.. …and I want to learn.. …a wonderful feeling. 🙂

          • i understand Markus…for me as well it’s all about making my work stronger…and enjoying what i do…today off to printers …for final copies as i had samples printed first and i will be checking with a framer too…got to get this part of the work done…all exciting for me 😀 have a productive day Markus 😀

  23. “Bright” is one of the most beautiful images and use of colour that I think I have seen 😀 ❤️

      • It looks like you have been shooting for ever, and studying the science for many years. It’s lovely to hear stories like that, like a divine intervention x

  24. The Talker really was my pick in the bunch; my vote submitted accordingly! And Congrats for being included in the contest!

  25. congratulations… three great photos
