Pre-Myth celebrates Jakob de Boer’s most extensive body of work to date, Where Ravens Cry; made over a two-year period on Vancouver Island and the surrounding region. The photographs are the result of a hauntingly soulful exploration of the mythology and mysticism of Canada’s Pacific Northwest. They evoke a visual anthropology that captures the spiritual significance of the region’s ancestral lands and the legends that were birthed from them.
We chose to frame the works in a hybrid of classic and contemporary styles; de Boer's exquisite gelatin silver prints are mounted on Stonehenge paper and floated in custom shadow-box, slate-gray stained walnut frames. We hope that they inspire you to appreciate the craft of fine printmaking, and even more importantly, to cherish our relationship to the land and those who have protected it for centuries before us.
