Habitat, circa October 22, 2007

In October, 2007, Janet Stewart visited Montreal and took photographs of the many important points interest found in that city. She recently posted her work which I found at Flickr.com.

What attracted me to her work was how each photograph had been well thought-out in terms of trying to capture the details and dimensions of her subject matter. Janet certainly has an eye for capturing breathtaking pictures with a camera. That said, I was curious to know if she was a professional photographer by profession and it turns out I wasn't too far off the mark.

"I am not a professional photographer, just someone who loves photography and art," said Janet.  "I must confess, I was a TV producer for seven years in the past and did shoot video (studio and on location) where I learned how much pleasure a camera can bring."

Her fascinating Habitat 67 photograph reveals how structurally sound the building is forty years later.  The building was designed by Moshe Safdie and has become, in my opinion, an enduring symbol that truly reflects the legacy of Expo 67.
