Lot Report


Conservation or Exploitation? These are two opposing forces that we struggle with. 'Land of the Free' is a series in progress that highlights this dichotomy.

About the Artist:
An award-winning photographer, Richard Collens is a Calgary-based, lifelong photographer with a desire for adventure, road trips and finding the beauty in nature and in otherwise mundane surroundings. Although Richard has had a camera in his hand since he was young, he really started taking things seriously later in life, focusing more on the quality and artistry of his photographs. ​
