Theme:                  Photographer Scott McFarland creates exacting images that depict
                        nature crafted to human will and desire. In this exhibition,
                        McFarland groups his photographs into three themes: gardens,
                        photography: art and the document, and animals. The exhibition
                        comprises three series of works, Gardens (2001–06), Hampstead
                        (2005 continuing), and Empire (2003 continuing). A major body of
                        work focuses on Vancouver gardens.
