Aaron Faulkenberg "Cougar Creek" 2011
Cougar CreekPigment Print16x20”
Aaron's ardent beginning in photography occurred upon receiving his father's camera. With only manual controls and intuition to guide him, he learned to see and ultimately craft fine photographs. Growing up in the Alberta countryside, Aaron had, from the beginning, a keen awareness for the subtle beauty and diversity of the landscape surrounding him. Photography seemed like the natural form of expression - a medium that could combine the displays of nature with his own artistic vision of the landscape and the meaning found therein. Whether I am working in colour or black and white, the goal remains the same: effectively communicate a unique sense of place and space in what is often overlooked or seen as familiar.
