In This Place

In This Place:
Calgary 2004 – 2011 presents photographer George Webber’s personal take on his hometown. Webber captured tiny moments, improbably fragments and exquisite details of everyday life in the city as it approached then surged past the one million mark. George’s pictures are all about the importance of finding beauty, meaning and the mystery in the place you live. Acclaimed author Aritha van Herk provides the sparkling essays.
