Illuminations: forest and seashore impressions is  a collection of lumen prints made from late winter seaweed and early spring windfall. Ten images invite the viewer to imagine more than what meets the eye at first glance. They are printed from handmade negatives that have been digitized to illuminate shadows and traces of  cherry blossoms, bamboo, carrageenan and pine branches.  Illuminations will be on show in the windows of the Chinese Cultural Centre of Vancouver for the month of January and can be seen 24/7 at 50 East Pender Street.
