Landscape as Muse

Season Two - Episode 25

Waterton Lakes National Park with Tom Willock
Waterton Lakes National Park marks an abrupt convergence of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains. This dramatic meeting of ecosystems and landforms makes the Waterton area one of the most biologically and geographically diverse locations in Canada. Tom Willock's rich black and white large-format photographs capture the texture and drama of this landscape. Underlying the aesthetic value of these images is a unwavering concern for the preservation of nature.

"...when I photograph something, I secure it in my own mind. I secure it for myself. Just to show what we really are losing -- or saving. These photographs are real. These aren't imaginary places this is what our earth looks like."
