A Coffee-Table Book from the Mountain-Top

A Coffee-Table Book from the Mountain-Top

Coffee tables and books. They go together like college and questionable decisions.

Usually coffee table books are filled with color photos to ponder while you sip your dark roast.

It’s meditatively simple, and this coffee table book of photos taken on back-country ski trips through the mountains of Northern British Columbia is no different.

This Alberta based artist will have you pulling over every 5 minutes so he can absorb the beauty of the Rocky Mountain slopes, or snap a couple shots of a glacier-fed winding river - inspiration for his digital meets paint artworks. Then 60 miles up the road, he’ll find another inspiring scene and ask to do it all over again.

But the end results are always worth it.
