Boshard Photo

Welcome to my site. The earliest images here were taken in the late 70's, the majority of the Vancouver photos in the 80's, and the latest a few months ago. Early explorations with the camera were mostly architectural or urban scenes. An interest in urban transformation was, in retrospect, the motivator for the choice of subjects. I was drawn to the contrast of emptiness amidst the busyness of the city. This led to respect and concern of heritage buildings, and ongoing documentation. The endless layers, irony, and contrast of the cityscape, signs, change, people and perpetual motion provide inspiration for photography and self discovery, through the images we find and create. Thanks for visiting.
