Five generations of David Ellingsen’s family have been a part of the forest industry in British Columbia, from falling old growth trees and clear cutting to contributing to local sustainable harvest initiatives and environmental responsibility. His great grandfather and great uncle, in providing for their families and future, fell many of the actual trees whose remnants you now see in these photographs. It was in this familial context within historical colonial forestry practices, filtered through the contemporary environmental crisis, that the seeds of this series were sown. The Last Stand serves as a meditation on the environment, contemporary globalized culture, and the essential incompatibility of the two.
