Paul Murasko’s hand-tinted photographs capture and heighten not so much Edmonton’s landmarks, but Edmonton’s own peculiar poetic of urban strips and boom-town aesthetic. Often they are grim but never dull or spiteful, rather through light and colour, the images are our exaggerated memories of early dusk in winter or the hazy atmosphere of heat and concrete in a downtown strip. Murasko does not apologize for the city’s clumsy sprawl – he allows for its contingency upon place and time to beautiful.
