Clive Bryson lives in Salmon Arm, a small community on Shuswap Lake located on the Canadian Pacific Railway mainline 468 kms from Vancouver, British Columbia.
Bryson has been photographing Shuswap flora, fauna, scenery, and cultural life for decades. He is also keenly interested in the graffiti sprayed on train cars.
Acknowledging that the images are considered vandalism, Bryson says they also have artistic merit. He points out that photographing the art is often complicated because the trains are typically in motion.
Bryson is interested in creating a series that documents the creation of train art, but says that the artists operate in secret and he has not yet figured out where it happens.
Most of the images in this slide show were taken in Salmon Arm, just above the Salmon Arm Bay Nature Enhancement Society (SABNES) foreshore trail. To see more of Bryson's work, click here to visit his other work online.
