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.

According to Buddha

These two people are hard to find in the world. Which two? The one who is first to do a kindness, and the one who is grateful and thankful for a kindness done.

TITLE: Man and Dog


As an imagemaker I study how the world around me looks and sounds through ordinary harmony and fittingness. I work daily with my camera and with words to compose beautiful “thought things” (Arendt, 1978) as a way to form ideas and to inspire reflection and rumination; perhaps start a conversation.

My photographs are allegories for my understandings of human desire for settlement of spaces and places in which people and things fit together. I try to negotiate my subjectivities of looking and composing my “thought things” with (Scruton, 2009) ideas of why beauty matters, to see the remedy of beauty as an instrument of peace.
