Olivier Du Tré is a Belgian/Canadian fine art landscape photographer specialized in the beautiful Prairies and Foothills around his hometown and the mighty Rocky Mountains to the West of it. His goal as a photographer is to capture the emotions he goes through when enjoying the vast, silent foothills around his hometown of Cochrane. Subjects often revolve around weather, clouds, loneliness and rhythms Olivier finds in nature. We had the privilege to interview Oliver and to share some of his best artworks, so don’t hesitate to check it out below.

Diana Thorneycroft is a Winnipeg artist who has exhibited various bodies of work across Canada, the United States and Europe, as well as in Moscow, Tokyo and Sydney. She is the recipient of numerous awards including an Assistance to Visual Arts Long-term Grant from the Canada Council, several Senior Arts Grants from the Manitoba Arts Council and a Fleck Fellowship from the Banff Centre for the Arts. Her work has been the subject of national radio documentaries and a CBC national documentary for television.

Besides the beautiful images after the jump you will find two amazing video interviews with the visual artist & photographer.
