If you’ve done any research on surfing off the coast of British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province, there’s a good chance you’ve come across some of Jeremy Koreski’s work. His photos capture moments—of surfing, of fishing, of wildlife—backdropped by the awe-inspiring scenery that defines the life and culture of the region.
“Through my work I’ve learned to appreciate the outdoors and nature,” Jeremy says. “Whether it’s swimming with sea lions in the lineup or driving the boat next to a pod of Orcas, almost every time I am out on the ocean or in the forest on Vancouver Island, I see something amazing.”
And if he needs a reminder, visitors help freshen his perspective. “What really get’s me out of a rut is when a friend from out of town comes to Tofino and I get a chance to see things I take for granted through their eyes. Places I walk by every day will be new and exciting to them, and it really makes me stop and look.”
Most of the photos in this Auditorium come from a trip to the Great Bear Rainforest Jeremy took with Chris Malloy during the filming of his short documentary Groundswell.
