Yukon photographer Peter Mather presentation
April 5, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
At eight years old, Peter Mather moved to Canada’s Yukon Territory and immediately fell in love with the place; its wild rivers and snow-capped mountains, and the time spent exploring the land with his father.
Later in life, while still in university, Mather recalls seeing a fascinating presentation on the Peel Watershed by Ken Madsen, a Whitehorse-based writer, photographer and adventurer. “I was inspired by the beauty of the Yukon and the fight to protect its key wilderness areas,” he says. “After the show, I began tinkering with cameras and have been ever since.”
Members of the Whitehorse Photography Club and non-members alike are welcome, hope to see you there!
Peter was featured in a recent CBC story about his winning three first-place awards in the annual Oasis photo contest. In his “Birds” category winner, a couple of bald eagles feast on a salmon, alongside Alaska’s Chilkat River.
