A photography exhibit shows the beauty of Pitt Meadows

The Pitt Meadows Public Library will host Viewscapes of Pitt Meadows: A Photographic Journey.

Photographer Kim Kamstra has put together a 13-minute video showcasing a selection of some of his 6,000 landscape photographs and videos he took over the years between 1996 and 2019.

The photographs will feature spectacular sunrises and sunsets, weather photos, and images documenting the landscape through the seasons.

The Maple Ridge resident and co-owner of Raptors Ridge Birds of Prey began work on the project in the fall of 1996.

Kamstra focused on the City of Pitt Meadows primarily because he had worked for the City of Pitt Meadows for the past 31 years on a contract basis and would take time off for his trade on his way to work. , after work or during the lunch break. .

“It’s more about driving down a road in Pitt Meadows that you’ve probably never been on before,” Kamstra said of his unique style of photography.

“Walk on a seawall you’ve never been on before or let the really bad weather turn into really cool photography moments,” he said.

After the film, he will answer questions about his photographs and how he managed to capture the images.

Viewscapes of Pitt Meadows: A Photographic Journey takes place from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, June 8 at the Pitt Meadows Public Library, 12099 Harris Road, Unit 200.
