David Pantuso grew up in the mountains. Since age 11, through college, marriage, raising children, and a career in IT, a camera was always close at hand to capture the moments. Having now retired from his career, he is using his skills to pursue his love of photography and art in photomanipulation. Retiring to Fernie with his wife brings them back to the love of the mountain. David’s photographs take on an unrealistic look, but at the same time allow the viewer to recognize the image and enjoy the colours, lines, and shapes of the images.
