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.

At Pancake Bay Provincial Park, Jake rises up early to photograph our dawns. First was overcast, second was fog, and third showed God's light in the sky. Calm, cool, grey, those first two subtle skies suit his quest for serenity. Jane prefers to linger in the shaded tent, attempting to get back some of her Sleep's lost night time. Here she finds the first beach construction of the trip, and remembers the one she had made years ago with her daughter Jasmine on the same shore. That one had been a small graveyard remembering her sister, her grandparents, and her dearest cats. On the last night at Pancake Bay, the fiercest storm we ever heard raged all night, continuously roaring, exploding, lighting the sky. The MEC tent held us dry, but nothing protected our sleep from the barrage. Nothing protected us from thinking about how fragile that waterproof shield was! On the third morning that post-storm sky was bright and clear! We viewed with awe the tree that had downed only feet away. At our breakfast place, we heard that the Transcanada was washed out. We could not proceed westward.
