#Canada150Photos: Follow this photographer’s journey across Canada
To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, freelance photographer Zach Baranowski travelled for 30 days across the country, capturing 150 photographs showing the diverse beauty of Canada and tell stories of its people.
Between April 20 and May 16, Baranowski travelled coast to coast in an RV on an epic photo journey courtesy of photo printing company Posterjack.
From the 15,000 photographs he amassed over that month-long period, 150 were chosen as a “gift” for Canada. Baranowski’s expertise on travel photography and the environment shone through in his collection, with 150 photos of nature, landscapes, and manmade structures that reflected the different facets of Canada.
His goal is to get others to appreciate the outdoors and the diversity of the landscapes in Canada, and with his 150 photo project, he shows a unique perspective on the country.
“The goal of this project was to encapsulate the whole country at this historic moment. I’m excited to present Canada with these photographs,” he said.
“It’s amazing how diverse the landscape of the country is. The Badlands in Alberta reminded me of Utah; British Columbia reminded me of the rain forests of South America; and Newfoundland was reminiscent of Ireland.”
Posterjack’s president, Tim Faught, said the 150 photo collection is its present to Canadians, who can download, share, and enjoy the images for free.
“We wanted to give Canadians – especially those who’ve never had the chance to see it themselves – a chance to experience their country in a new and unforgettable way,” he said.
