Back To Burdock

BURDOCK WAY, HALIFAX : January 2018
Every photographer has a place they keep returning to, and a scene they keep retaking, in a quest for the definitive image they never quite find. Mine is probably the Burdock Way Overpass in Halifax, which I first photographed when it was still under construction some fifty years ago. I still return every few months to visit it again, like a sad old artist revisiting a favourite model from times long gone by.

  1. I have an overpass I photographed often in the past, but it's been a couple of years. It would be a grey and white picture now, concrete and snow.

  2. The idea of visiting and re-visiting over again is akin to wanting to find something we will never find there. Ah, life!
