Photography and Fine Art Digital Printing for the Beauty of It

The Show

"she saw, he saw: Superior" presented the photography of Jane Keeler and Jake Morrison from a trip dedicated to capturing our individual views of the area above Lake Superior. The show was presented at Gallery 200, 200 Crichton Street, Ottawa on the 150 feet of massive old public school hallway walls in November and December 2017.

We followed the Ottawa River for the first day of travel, landing at Driftwood Provincial Park. The Ottawa River, as you may know, is a great one. Its original name in the Algonquin language is Kichisìpi, meaning "Great River." However, most of us who live on its shore or in its cradling graben are unaware of how great a river it is!

We arrived in the Driftwood Provincial Park to be bathed in a deeply orange sunset. It was a warm and soothing light, and it seemed to colour everything-the trees, the wood, the sand, our bodies. We soaked in this warm calming light which surrounded us and shone through the waters of the Ottawa river. Here we saw two women reflecting each other's beauty, making glamour in the Big Studio of this space in an intimate friendship, both private and public at the same time.

This, our first night out, we slept in our sardine-can mosquito-filled car. Bloodstains are still on the roof.
