PHOTOHAUS Gallery is pleased to host ‘GRIT’ -Scenes of South East Asia by recent winner of The Capture Photography Festival – Georgia Straight People’s Choice Award, Christopher Edmonstone. This will be Edmonstone’s first solo exhibition and it will incorporate the winning images and a number of others from this body of work.
“What I love about photography is it’s ability to instantly transport the viewer to a place and time that can stir recollections of bygone travels, depict exotic locations most unlike where the viewer lives or are even likely to visit and inspire dreams.
I strive to capture images showing local peoples’ engagement with the land and am particularly interested in activities that are carried out largely as they have always been, despite the rapidly advancing technological landscape. For me, ‘GRIT’ embodies not just the characteristic of people that maintain their determination over long periods despite facing adversity from the physical environment and economic circumstances, but I believe that ‘GRIT’ can be observed in inanimate objects, found in the cultural landscape, which are also subjected to the same the harshness of clime and human use.”
