“As creatives, we all share the responsibility of capturing the beauty and impact in our world. But to have an opportunity to recognize and celebrate that creativity as a team and as a Nation, that is something unique to the World Photographic Cup. I am simply humbled for another opportunity to share this experience with my fellow Canadians.”
‘Connected’ In all her glory, Mother Nature paints this beautiful story of connectivity between us and this beautiful world we live in. Few animals have been as vital to the Pacific experience as salmon. From grizzly bears to orca whales, more than 130 different species depend on the marine-rich nutrients that these wild salmon provide. Here, we see the numbers are strong, their presence telling us this ecosystem is healthy. A Guardian glides slowly across the river and the surface erupts in a swarm of red sockeye and violent white water. They are only here to observe and protect, but we’re reminded how easily we affect the world around us.
‘The Tender Side’ Life of a bear in the wilderness is one locked in an endless struggle for survival. And a mother bear with a new cub, will work fiercely to keep her young one safe. But these bears are more than raw emotion. They are sentient beings with large personalities capable of compassion, humor, curiosity, devotion and even grief. And here, in moments like these, they are even tender. This connection builds trust between mom and cub will be the building block upon which this cub learns to communicate, socialize, survive and love.
As our world fell hostage to the restraints of a global pandemic, an unwanted solitude and feeling of abandonment engulfed our everyday lives. Here, a once bustling downtown city center sat vacant of all signs of life. I stood alone, surrounded by these towering structures and felt their longing to be remembered; to be embraced.
An enthusiastic tussle between a lone eaglet and a pair of ravens ensued at the base of a nearby tree. I moved slowly to capture a clean line of sight when this magnificent creature flew into my peripheral. The massive wingspan unfolded and he shifted into his chair to assume a watchful position. His mere presence forced rapid resolve and he resumed a methodical scanning of the kingdom laid out before him.
