Light to dark

Four prints of salmon on white paper in varying shades of black and grey ranging from light to dark are arranged in a column.

Light or dark? I’ve been dabbling in making fish prints out of salmon carcasses.

Salmon migrate from the Pacific ocean back to the river they were born, where they spawn (reproduce) and naturally die. They can swim hundreds of kilometers upriver to find spawning habitat, overcoming barriers and predators alike to make it back to where their life began. It is truly one of the most wondrous life cycles on earth.

I love being on the river, watching salmon do their thing, and making art out of the final process.
