About this Exhibition...

Moose, Mounties'n Muskeg

Images of Canada by Richard McGuire

Okay, my tongue was firmly planted in my cheek when I came up with the title for this photo exhibition.

I'm blatantly pandering to an international stereotype of Canada -- one that many Canadians find embarrassing. You see, we Canadians often like to think of ourselves as a modern sophisticated country with cosmopolitan cities and advanced technology. The image of moose, Mounties and muskeg is one that many a business organization has tried to erase. And Canadians wince whenever Hollywood evokes this image of us.

Still, I've traveled this country from one end to another, and actually I did see lots of moose, Mounties and muskeg. Most Canadians live huddled along the U.S. border for warmth, and there are vast areas of sparsely populated wilderness around us. What's more, much of it is incredibly beautiful and unique in the world.

This exhibition celebrates those images.

These photos are for sale in an 8" X 12" format by auction through eBay, the international Internet auction websites, or though my eBay store. Each auction will offer only one of each picture in that format, typically at a much lower price than normal.

Whether you buy or not, please enjoy my photos. I welcome your comments, feedback and inquiries.
