Jason Pettit finds wonder in the open spaces created by Prince Edward County’s shorelines, and has become well-known for recording the majesty of our most iconic locations, including those secret spots protected by locals. With the recent flooding and high windstorms, many of his photographs document landscapes that no longer exist.
Born and raised in Prince Edward County, Jason chose a career that would allow him to experience his unique surroundings. As a land surveyor, he has been exposed to some unusual areas of the region, which led him to discover ways to share his perspective. With photography, he found a medium with which he could closely match his own experience, and so share it with others. We share in his early mornings, enjoy the gloaming, and revel in the hard to trek to locales without the blaring alarm, and difficult journey. He finds the light for us.
See Jason’s award-winning work in a new exhibit titled Neutral Fury, curated by local freelance curator Gabriele Cole. Opening reception March 26 at 7PM. Show runs until April 5 at Carbon Art & Design is located at 281b Main Street, Picton.
