As I continue to look back upon the Glenbow exhibit, Encounters, I am very much intrigued by the people who were guest curators and their approach to selecting a single photograph by Edward Burtynsky for the exhibit. Marie Delorme is the CEO for the Imagination Group and is a mentor to many, it seems, in every aspect of her life. I was moved by the narrative that was exhibited alongside her selection of Container Ports #110, Delta Port, Vancouver, British Columbia. The gist of Marie’s narrative is that manufacturing and consumerism pulls humankind away from our connection with nature. I can’t agree more. I agree that there has to be some reconciliation happen between humanity’s need to consume…and its ability to protect the planet, all at the same time. This can no longer be a matter of (P)olitics and/or polarized views…somehow we have to come more to a middle in our understanding of the issues. Thank you for your selection, Marie Delorme and best wishes on your journey!
As you view the Burtynsky photograph, there is a pathway. Where does it lead?
