This work is from Canadian photographer Brian Michael Barbeito’s ongoing photo essay called Pastoral Mosaics: Journeys Through Landscapes Rural.
Brian Michael Barbeito is a photographer and writer who documents nature in Southern Ontario. He explores woodlands, farms, open fields, and the deeper forests, off path, where even serious hikers don’t venture. There are hidden streams, strange trees, untouched wildflowers, and unseen natural vistas that provide continual inspiration for his prose poems, creative nonfiction essays, nature vignettes, and of course, photography. Brian’s recent work appears at Fiction International and CV2 The Canadian Journal of Poetry and Critical Writing. He is also the author of Chalk Lines (Fowl Pox Press, 2013).
