Borderlands By Mark Vitaris At The Galt Museum & Archives

  By Ryley Smith

 

Mark Vitaris is doing another discussion on his book Borderlands at the Galt Museum & Archives in Lethbridge. If you haven’t had the opportunity to see one of Mark’s presentations on Borderlands, this is a must! Borderlands by Mark Vitaris is a passionate collection of images that transports you through time and place. From where the majestic Rockies touch down to the rolling foothills, into grasslands that stretch on for ages, Borderlands takes you on a visual journey through the richly diverse cultural heritage of the Great Northern Plains. 

Focusing on the land that straddles the forty-ninth parallel, Borderlands metaphorically depicts a river of time with tributaries of history and disparate cultures flowing in discontinuous moments of consciousness. A portrayal of a land where you can feel the wind blow the dust of ages, a place of melancholic beauty, an oasis of solitudes. An event you won’t want to miss.
