Jim Lowrie is a photographer of Scottish origin who has spent the majority of his life in greater Vancouver. An avid cyclist, hiker and lifelong learner, Jim became interested in photography at a very early age, and after a successful career in civil engineering is devoting much of his time to creating images of the Pacific Northwest and of international travels. Jim strives to present the simplicity of shadow and light within complex natural landscapes and the urban realm. Jim’s most current work can be found on flickr.
The optical illusion created by this unconventional viewpoint of the iconic Vancouver House in downtown Vancouver can be interpreted metaphorically with the disillusion that many, mostly younger or disadvantaged people face in finding quality and affordable housing within the Vancouver metropolis.
