I made this image while camping up at Honeymoon Lake in Jasper National Park in 2008. It was early morning around 6am and the camp was quiet except for a group of german speaking boys who were already heading out to go for a bath in the lake. Something about seeing this first boy walk slowly in the water made me think about birth and the fact that we are formed within a womb that is filled with amniotic fluid. To return to the water is to submerge ourselves in the origins of our life.
