Around here we like to start the year by hating our city.

I always thought it a shame, growing up, how widespread and acceptable it was to hate Winnipeg. No matter how positive your "new year new me" resolutions were you could still resent the place you lived.

For me, photography is capturing beautiful, spectacular and expressive sceneries or moments. The observer should feel something when he sees the picture. For example, when somebody looks at my pictures I hope he desires being at this place. I also appreciate that I can capture moments of a whole trip. When I see the pictures later, I have again some of the feelings I had while I was on the journey.

My name is Brayden Elliott and I'm from 'the gap' (Saskatchewan) as some people call it. I'm currently in between jobs, which leaves more time for photography and hopefully travel. I grew up in Saskatoon and travelled all the way to Lloydminster for college where I took business classes in between basketball practices which seems like ages ago. I won a three point competition in an Asian basketball tournament one time.

I believe that images (drawings and photography) can act as a universal language, helping to foster communication and understanding between people with different cultures and worldviews. Art is a medium through which scientists can expand on their ideas and share their interests. For me, photography is a way to acknowledge the important link between the people who live in the region and the scientific research that takes place here.
