Photo Release: “The Lund Homestead I” by Scott Dimond

Photo Release: “The Lund Homestead I” by Scott Dimond

Starting in the early 1900s, the T. Eaton Company and the Canadian Aladdin Company sold kit homes (sometimes called “catalogue homes”) across Western Canada. Kit homes were attractive for their fixed price and the fact that all building materials to construct the home came in one shipment. In many cases, the homes came pre-cut and required little skill to assemble. As a result, like in the US, many of the old homesteads that remain across the Canadian prairies are identical to each other, all ordered from a limited selection in the same catalogs...

Photo Release: “The Wreck of Örn SH 248” by Scott Dimond

I have been to Iceland four times but my second visit stands out for the extremely unfavorable weather and for producing some of my favorite images. That does not sound like a likely combination but sometimes things just work out that way and weather pushes you to unplanned locations...

Photo Release: “Magical Twilight” by Scott Dimond

Is this a sunset or sunrise photo? The answer is, well, both. Twilight is the sunlight that appears just after sunset or just before sunrise and is often the most magical of light. I captured this image in the early morning hours between sunset and sunrise on a day in early June, about 15 days before the summer solstice. The sun had set after midnight but would rise again in just over 2 hours. What makes this photo particularly special is that it captures light from both sunset and sunrise...

Photo Release: “The Little Red A-Frame” by Scott Dimond

Old abandoned homes have been a reoccurring theme in my photographs and I’m always on the lookout for them wherever I go. In fact, when I’m planning a trip, I like to do a little advanced scouting via satellite imagery to see if there are some potential abandoned buildings to be found. That was the case with my second trip to Iceland. Sure, I was going to drive the roads and hike the trails to look for wonderful photographic subjects – the country is full of them – but it is always nice to have a few planned destinations in mind...

Photo Release: “Harvesting the Past” by Scott Dimond

Although I live just one hour away from the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains to the west, I spend a surprising amount of my time exploring the vast Canadian prairies to the east. My fascination with the prairies lies in the old abandoned homesteads, a testament to a strength and fortitude of people willing to take a chance on a new beginning nearly a century ago. These days, the number of these homesteads that remain continues to shrink and I must travel farther and farther to find them...

Banff is the most famous of the National Parks in the Canadian Rockies. The road between the townsites of Banff and Lake Louise is driven by millions of visitors each year. Lesser known is the Icefield Parkway, a road that stretches 144 miles from Lake Louise at the south to Jasper townsite, in Jasper National Park to the north.

Photo Release: “Days Gone By” by Scott Dimond

This photograph was really the start of two areas of focus in my photographic journey. It was one of the first large-scale panoramic images I produced and was also the start of my serious pursuit of grand scenes that included rural abandonment. On a multi-day exploring trip across the Canadian prairies, I found this location on a rainy evening in June. The grass was green and lush and the setting was surreal...

Photo Release: “Soliloquy for SoHo” by Dan Piech

The SoHo neighborhood in New York city has an immediately-recognizable charm about it. Stately cast iron facades line manicured cobblestone streets and symmetrical urban canyons carry into the distance, flanked by iconic New York fire escape ladders. Typically accompanying this charm are groups of residents and tourists perusing the upscale boutiques that the neighborhood is also known for. However, this bustle of activity can frequently overshadow the architectural beauty of the surrounding buildings that were protected as a National History Landmark in 1978...

Photo Release: “Midnight in Manhattan” by Dan Piech

New York's characteristically energetic skyline takes on a captivating aesthetic when presented in monochrome. This phenomenon is amplified when "the city that never sleeps" is captured after the sun sets on a Saturday night and the bright lights of the city's bustling activity illuminate the landscape. Likewise, this phenomenon is even more poignant with an elevated and unobstructed vantage point looking across the vast undulating cityscape. And this phenomenon becomes something truly special after a snowstorm transforms the city into an idyllic winter wonderland. After months of preparation and waiting, I was able to create a photo at the confluence of all these principles...

San Francisco holds an endless trove of hidden secrets that most of the 16.9 million yearly visitors will never get a chance to experience. Most will visit the major attractions, and the occasional few will uncover some of its off-the-beaten-path areas, but there are many areas that are generally only really known to locals...
