Beach/Leslieville photographer Frank Lemire is showing some of his photos from Ontario's provincial parks at the Lazy Daisy Café, 1515 Gerrard St. E., now through Feb. 4.
Called Provincial, the exhibition features many infrared photographs of this province's natural treasures. “My family and I have been camping for many years,” Lemire said. “We've been to Killbear, The Pinery, Bon Echo, and of course Algonquin. While my wife and daughter play on the beach, I like to go hiking with my camera.”
“I dream of the world in infrared,” said Lemire who uses a specially converted infrared digital camera. “I really like the way it lets me interpret the landscape. Suddenly I am able to create abstract visions while still in reality.”
There will be an artist's reception held on Jan. 10 from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information visit Lemire's website at beyondsight.ca.
