Inspired by wilderness: Scott Forsyth

Scott Forsyth

Inspired by wilderness – including scenes glimpsed aboard his trips with Adventure Canada – photographic artist Scott Forsyth is turning heads with his stunning images.

Scott was named Alberta’s 2014 Photographic Artist of the Year at the recent Professional Photographer’s Association Awards Gala. He also won Best in Class award for both Fine Art and Pictorial photographic work.

Ken Murphy of Calgary, Alberta is Scott’s newest fan. Ken bought raffle tickets in support of the Arctic Eider Society at our Calgary screening of People of a Feather, and went home with a beautiful framed print, generously donated by Scott. The image was taken on an Adventure Canada trip to Labrador.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of Scott’s prints will go to Royal Canadian Geographic Society and to Nature Conservancy of Canada.

If you’re heading to NYC you can catch Scott’s work in the upcoming exhibit Sensorial Perspectives at the Agora Gallery in Chelsea – or click through to view gorgeous full-colour images on the gallery’s website. Congratulations Scott!

From the NFB: This feature documentary tells the story of 2 Inuit communities of the circumpolar north-one on Canada’s Baffin Island, the other in Northwest Greenland-that are linked by a migration led by an intrepid shaman.
As part of the University of Calgary‘s Aboriginal Awareness Week, the Native Centre, First Nations Student Association and the Arctic Institute of North America proudly present the award-winning film Vanishing Point on Tuesday March 12th.

Film-makers Steve Smith and Julia Szucs will be in attendance! (Previous AC passengers may recognize Julia from her videography work on past trips to the Arctic.)
