Blended photographs of Canmore: exhibition summer 2014

Good news on the blended historical/modern photographs of Canmore front: I’m working with the Canmore Museum to put together an exhibition of blended photographs for next summer. Look for a fundraiser beginning relatively soon. The museum will raffle off blended photographs at regular intervals, perhaps every month or maybe sooner to raise money for this project and the exhibition. If you like this project and the images coming out of it, keep an eye open! The first raffle should be starting soon.

To officially launch the project and announce the fundraising drive for it: Two lucky people who went to the museum’s volunteer and sponsor appreciation event Friday night got to take home this plaque-mounted image of Main Street:

Main Street: current and late 1890s/early 1900s.

And for now, here’s a new blended photograph I’m working on. Still a draft as the scale feels weird too me. The people at the top of the landing “feel” right, in terms of size and scale but the folks in the front look off, again in terms of scale and perspective. The challenge continues! But it’s a great challenge.
