Samuel de Champlain settle this region in 1608, but travelled and mapped Mexico,

northe easters USA and Canada between 1599 and that year. How did he feel when he

made this map and what did he see? I tried to photograph his maps and the land and

objects he confronted, to evoke his feelings. I found that tough to do.

This is a fine assemblage. 

Graphic designers utilizing photography do sometimes transcend their photographs. 

Graphic design has no important value by itself, but can catalize important value as yours has done here.

I'd like to see a lot more along this line.

I guess the arrowheads evoke fish in the river suggested by the map of Champlain and by the winter riverside above it, but I just tried to put together independent images to make a whole. The project is continuing and I found an old twin lens reflex with multiple exposure capability that might allow introduction of blurred (historic like) figures in a more virgin landcape, such as Champlain may have seen and trod back then. But I need to transcend better the simple images and graphism to get something more convincing. I do like this one enough, though, to hang it in the house (in any case it didn't move out of the seasonal gallery), but mainly for the commemorative relationship than any other reason.
