“The Wind is a magical force, the Lake a magnificent stage. The buzz of a large metropolis fades away. The great effort of steering and racing is hidden in the distance. From the shore, it is one grand performance where playful, proud and graceful poses cross paths with rhythmic threads of wildlife. Welcome to the Windscapes of Toronto’s waterfront.”
The Windscapes Series is a collection of painterly photographs that capture the beauty and strength of that invisible force, the Wind. Mighty, patient and persistent, over time it can move mountains. A deep understanding of it can power incredible journeys.
The images tell a tale of two realities, coexisting in time: the world that we see and the deeper truth we know. Sailing is physically demanding as boats zig-zag through the wind, yet from the shore it looks like effortless gliding along a straight line. Crews are racing, fiercely competing with in rough weather, yet the images feel peaceful, relaxing, even meditative. All of it is taking place in a busy metropolis, but even here peace is within reach.
Exhale. Find your Calm.
