Project SPACE presents Ottawa based photographer Michelle Valberg in her exhibition of Canadian wilderness, Nature Is Calling. June 15 – July 22, 2017.
Valberg showcases the beauty and wonder of Canada in celebration of its 150th.
For over 28 years Michelle Valberg has photographed Canadian landscapes and wildlife with the intention of regenerating simple beauty into a deeper reflection of humanity. She believes that the world around us mirrors what we, as human beings see in ourselves: our beauty, our simplicity and our complexity. Michelle believes that this may be why so many of us have become disconnected from the natural world. We often turn away from mirrors when they reveal things we do not wish to see.
Michelle's portrayals of the natural world draw you inwards, they get under your skin, and have a subtle way of occupying space in our soul. Michelle has a passionate belief that building awareness and educating others through her nature photography will inspire them to become better stewards of the natural world. She believes that through the development of a deeper understanding of the interconnections between people, animals and the environment others will be motivated to take-action perhaps in their local communities or in their own country.
