Pastoral Mosaics: Journeys Through Landscapes Rural

Brian Michael Barbeito

This work is from an ongoing photo essay. I am currently documenting nature walking in Southern Ontario, Canada. Among the environments explored are woodlands, farms, open fields, but also the deeper forests, off path, where people such as dog walkers, nature enthusiasts, landscape photographers, and even weekend and serious hikers don’t venture. There are hidden streams, strange trees, untouched wildflowers, and more, which provide continual inspiration for writing and, of course, photography.
