Artist: Alex Fowkes

Photographer: David Gluns


Alex chose “Manifest” because he spent some time in Nelson a few years ago and got to understand that the Kootenays have a vibe, that no one can explain. Some kind of attraction or ‘thing’ to the mountain range. ‘Manifest’ is about everyone here aspiring to have a goal and a thing you want to do. Mountains attract people that are driven, self-motivated, have a lot of goals and things they want to do.

It’s laid out so that you have to read it from top to bottom so that you’re looking up to the sky when you’re reading it.
