A Man Named Rooster | Back To The Land

A Man Named Rooster | Back To The Land

Kenneth Olson was born on June 7, 1941, and has been all over the country, but it seems his love for the ocean is where his heart is. He definitely has not had the easiest life and shares a variety of stories of which I don’t know if they’re true or not, however, the tone in his voice and the softness in his eyes I couldn’t doubt him. His conspiracy stories I find hilarious, with no sign of sarcasm…

Another random encounter in BC's Kootenays

Another random encounter in BC's Kootenays

In the last week of September 2017, my wife and I decided to do a quick eight-day road trip to the West Kootenays; two reasons, explore some new areas of British Columbia and secretly I wanted to photograph more people for my Back to The Land project. My wife continues to give me evil eyes if I don’t even humour the idea of bringing her along.
