This series of four - “Winter Church”, placed first at the 2022 International Photography Awards (IPA) in New York.
In February of 2022, I spent time photographing the stunning landscape of Saskatchewan, Canada. Harsh and bitterly cold, it creates its own photographic challenges, but for a landscape so barren, it offers so many beautiful images.
This first image in the series is an abandoned church in what felt like the middle of nowhere. It was as peaceful as it was haunting. Reaching temperatures of -34, I laid in the snow to look up and photograph this abandoned place of worship.
Image is hand signed and printed on Epson Legacy Etching, archival 100% cotton fibre paper.
