Join us for an evening with photographer, artist, and author Heather Johnston, discussing her recent book For the Love of Vancouver: Connections with Beauty, a collection of over 100 classic black & white photos of some of Vancouver’s most notable and lessor known landmarks. Accompanying some of the photographs spread throughout the book are a collection of related short stories from everyday Vancouverites, recounting cherished memories of time spent with co-workers, friends and loved ones. These memories add life to the images creating a richer, more engaging experience for the reader.

Heather’s work is inspired by the beauty of the natural world and the mysteries of life.  She blends photography, digital manipulation and hand painting into a growing collection of fine art prints, gifts and decor products.
