Knot to be missed

A photographic exhibition by Kitimat photographer Robin Rowland

Kitimat author, photographer and writer Robin Rowland will be speaking about his eight-year photography project The Scream of the Forest on Thursday, January 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the upstairs gallery of theKitimat Museum & Archives.

“In the spring of 2011, I noticed a knot on an old stump that bore a remarkable resemblance to Edvard Munch’s famous painting collectively known as The Scream.

For the past eight years I photographed the old knot in all four seasons, winter, spring, summer and fall, in all weather conditions, rain, snow, mist, and sun, until it was destroyed in the spring of 2019,” said Rowland.

“As the world hurtles toward climate catastrophe, species extinction and destruction of biodiversity, the trees and plants have no voice in the polarized political debates. Make no mistake, however – the forest is screaming.”

Light refreshments will be served.

Robin Rowland is an author, writer and photographer, and has worked as a writer, reporter, producer and photojournalist for Canadian and international news organizations. He is the author of five previous books and a number of short stories.
