Gordon Hiebert (1948 ... )
I have been a landscape photographer since 1978 when I submitted my first prints to local galleries in Chilliwack, BC. Darkroom work came naturally, developing and making my own prints was almost second nature. Since moving to Alberta I have fallen for the amazing sweeping skies and vast landscape of the prairies. As a result I dedicated myself to capturing the look and feel of our unique environment, the strong sense of history, the buildings and relics from pioneering days that still can be found if one looks. For a format I chose the panorama as being the only way I could substantially represent our province.
In the past, art shows and exhibits in the larger cities have been my mainstay, my way of introducing this work to Albertans. But recently the Gasoline Alley Farmers Market in Red Deer County has opened their doors to me, and I am now an artist in residence. Much of my gallery is on display there, and I am here personally every weekend Fri-Sun.
