Tomas Jirku is an emerging Vancouver-based photographer who explores the backcountry of the surrounding mountains in search of its hidden secrets. He uses modern technology to explore beyond the limits of human vision, seeking to reveal the otherwise imperceivable energies that radiate from these pristine environments. Combining layers of perception, Tomas provides the viewer context for the reverie one experiences away from the human-made world, and an awareness of perspectives beyond those we take for granted.
