Project Inglewood

Inglewood is the oldest community in Calgary and last year it received the accolade of Canada’s best neighbourhood. I always enjoy wandering around the area because of the old buildings, the eclectic mix of stores, restaurants and the various live music venues. Inglewood is also a great place to sit and watch the world go by over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Over the next little while (time yet to be determined), I will be making photographs in and around Inglewood with the idea of assembling a body of work that represents the character of the place. Recently I made this photograph of the back of one of the old buildings that face onto 9th Avenue, the main street of Inglewood. It remains to be seen whether or not it makes it into the final portfolio.

    Neat photo, Chris. I agree; Inglewood is a very interesting area to visit. Feels like a trip back in time, yet with all the amenities that make it modern. Bev and I had a few lunches in various restaurants, one of our favourites being the old firehall. We will soon be venturing out on the road to some of our haunts in Washington, and looking forward to it.
