Martin Weinhold

A friend told me that a German photographer, Martin Weinhold, was looking for subjects for his Workspace Canada project.  He had portrayed a number of city occupations and was interested in the kind of activities that go on in the west Chilcotin – ranchers, outfitters, pilots, general storekeepers etc.  I went round with him on his first day to introduce him to people.  It happened to be one of the three days a week that the sched flight from Vancouver arrived at the Anahim Airport, and I watched him setting up his camera.
