The Canadian Rockies are iconic. Visitors travel from all over the world to enjoy and experience the majesty, power and serenity of this grand mountainscape. With the expansion of digital photography, tens of thousands of photographs are snapped here in the Canadian Rockies every day. Photographs have been, for the countless tourists, mainly records of their trips and a means to share their memories.

Since the invention of photography, photographers have also journeyed here, attracted by the wildness, the power and energy of the mountains and by their own desire to try and create something personal of this place through the creative process of photography. But the work that was, and still is, being created here goes far beyond the landscape. Photographers have used the energy of this place to help create work that reflects not just where they have been but what they feel about this place and, who we are as a society. From traditional landscape photographs by Ansel Adams and Bruce Barnbaum to social documentary work by Sylvia Plachy, Barbara Spohr and Stephen Shore to sculpture-based photography of Diana Thorneycroft and videos created by Clive Holden, this exhibition examines the many aspects and unique perspectives of photography inspired by a landscape of grand scale. Spanning the eras from the early 1900s to the present approximately twenty five photographers from around the world have been selected to reflect the diverse spectrum of photography.
