Michelle Peters,
Setting West

Michelle Peters is a Vancouver-based photographer and educator. She strongly believes in the power of creativity and visual story telling as a conduit for building strong communities and creating positive change.

Photographed through the window of a moving vehicle on the I-90 in the United States, Setting West explores what the human eye perceives as beautiful. Empty, lit-up parking lots, scraggly road-side bushes and dismal strip malls are transformed through the eye of the camera into abstract tableaus of graceful movement and vibrant colour.

Adam Stenhouse,
Neither Here Nor There

The images in this series are made up of two sets of diptychs. Each diptych asks is it the house we inhabit or the landscape that makes a home? Together they show the loss and gain of immigration to a new place. One set is based in memory, exploring places of childhood significance, the other in discovering a new place and building a sense of identity with it. Ultimately neither is one place left behind nor the other place fully arrived at as we all use ‘home’ as a method of identifying who we are.

Adam Stenhouse is a Vancouver based photographer. He completed his Master of Applied Arts (MAA) degree at Emily Carr University in 2012, and had previously earned a BA Hons in Visual Communication at the Glasgow School of Art in 2006.
