Artist’s Statement
For the past few years, I have been exploring the outer reaches of Richmond. Investigating its past—the time before the flood of development, the flood of people, and it seems, inevitably, the rising tides that may flood out the very areas at the outer edges of Richmond. As a child I would drive around Richmond with my parents, driving past the cranberry fields, along River Road—where the derelict boats, barges, and log booms reside—and out to Steveston to buy salmon fresh from the fishing boats and to walk the dykes. Here I present a collection of photographs that highlight the still remaining rustic aspects of Richmond. As with the city itself, its success lies in the land and the river. Its rich history still survives… on the peripheries. With Antediluvian, I wish to express how that rich past, and contact to nature, still exists.

Artist Biography
Wade Comer has spent his life focused on the arts. He spent the 90’s in the music industry—as a broadcaster, on ‘Coast 1040’ radio, a contributing music writer, recording bands and as a promoter at Nettwerk Records. For the next 15 years, he moved into architecture, working with Toronto and Vancouver based firms in marketing, brand design, writing, and photography. Throughout all of these creative endeavours, Wade’s one true passion, photography, has endured.
