Manitoba Mosaic - Hardcover Book
By George Fischer
In a collage of dazzling photos, George Fischer creates a solid mosaic from the heart. Sun-kissed cottages, beaches and grain. Wide-open spaces and big sky. Frosty fields, icy lakes and Arctic tundra. Shadowy shapes and soaring historical monuments.
Fischer’s art juxtaposes Manitoba’s storied past and stellar present in a photographic narrative underlining the elements that form the province’s distinctive personality. Water, wind and voyageurs. Polar bears and wild landscapes. Legendary music and dance; professional sports and recreational pursuits; iconic architecture and abundant heritage.
From the chilly shores of Hudson Bay to the temperate waters of Lake Winnipeg, the province is veined with rivers that served Aboriginals and traders of yore, and provide countless prospects for outdoor adventurers of today. It echoes with the sounds of skates and pucks that have been heard around the world. Manitoba’s famed music scene has bred popular rockers and country singers–and draws big-name international concerts. A creative design culture preserves the province’s past and continues to shape its future with architectural vibrancy. And an array of lively festivals adds colour and splash to the cultural landscape.
With ingenuity and insight being the mortar that cements these photographic pieces into an artistic mosaic, Fischer creates a formula that is sure to accelerate your heartbeat.
