Casey Roger Bennett's statement
The poetry of horse-logger turned poet, Lorne Dufour, serves as inspiration in this photographic examination on the interaction between man and the fringes of their physical surroundings.
I have always felt that there is a type of romanticism that attracts a certain kind of breed of ‘stubborn, not stupid’ folks to these rural parts of the Cariboo-Chilcotin. The region itself is notorious and largely defined by its overwhelming diverse landscapes and complete isolation, these areas have a history that transcends the very people who now call it home.
While the majority of these photographs focus on areas free of human presence, the cultural aura of those who occupy these territories are conveyed by what they have left behind.
