ALBERTA THROUGH THE BACK DOOR
Alberta Through the Back Door brings together the work of four photographers whose pictures present an increasingly complicated vision of Alberta.
In Kyler Zeleny’s series Crown Ditch and the Prairie Castle, forgotten views and back corners are intimately framed to highlight the West’s confused relationship with its pioneering past. Chris Malloy’s Rurban Landscapes tease us, uprooting what we expect out of a rural scene and reframing relics of Calgary’s quaint history within big prairie skies. Greg Gerla’s documentation is a visual diary of daily life in Alberta while George Webber gets an eyeful of Calgary’s feral side.
