This piece was inspired by the salmon runs of British Columbia. The salmon return from the ocean to the streams where they were hatched. They face many obstacles as they return home and in the end both death and completion await them.Look Closer
Barbara Burns Photography Canada
Barbara A. Burns: While I have always loved to paint and photograph all that is magical and moving in our world, I am primarily a dance photographer and digital artist. I am fascinated by the grace, power and fierce discipline of dancers, particularly in ballet. In my work I seek to capture their fleeting artistry, often so swift that the human eye can barely glimpse it. My own photography, often my dance images, form the underlying structure and inspiration for my digital art. For many years I have pursued part time studies in art and photography at such schools as Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Langara College and the University of Victoria. My work has been exhibited and sold in fine art shows and galleries in Canada. My website is www.barbaraburnsphotography.com where you can view a much wider range of my work.
