Hidden in the mountains of the West Kootenays in British Columbia lies the Valley of the Ghosts – a once rough but vibrant cluster of prosperous settlements – which has now mostly vanished. Kasia and I recently travelled to this forgotten area to search and photograph what is left of this magnificent piece of history.
Over the next few weeks we will publish numerous photographs along with bits of information about this place. We went there equipped with two favourite cameras, Fuji X-Pro1 with XF 14, 35 & 60mm lenses and Fuji X100s.
We have a lot of material we will show you soon but here are some hints of what is to come.
All images were processed with Iridient Developer 2.1 and Lightroom 4. Iridient Developer is new software, which supports the X-Trans files really well (the best demosaic so far?). We will share more about this in the upcoming posts.
and some B&W images…
