Whistler 1979

I borrowed a few copies of 'Beautiful British Columbia' an old travel magazine from my mom-in-law the other day and wanted to post a few 'then vs now' images.  It's amazing to see how much has changed.  Whistler, for instance, looks so incredibly different now.  
This photo instantly reminded me of Peter Doig's paintings from his Ski Jacket series (1994) that I was fortunate enough to see at the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery in 2001. These images along with more of Peter Doig's work can be viewed on the Tate website along with a virtual tour of the Exhibition.
