At the Edge of Canada: Peripheral Vision

Matthew Plexman


Plexman’s series of large-scale panoramas reveals the stark but stunning beauty of the Yukon. Enlarged to ten feet in length, these 180- to 360-degree images reach beyond the edges of peripheral vision. From a distance, luminous mountains, protrusions of dry rock, and bleak bogs allude to a barren landscape. But close up, discoveries of delicate lichen, exquisite and fragile tundra, strangled black spruce, and endless detail are found in the vast horizon.
