What others say
Wilko could not have done a more perfect job of capturing the awe-inspiring beauty of Western Canada. We often get so caught up in our daily lives that we don’t take the time to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. Thankfully, Wilko has a special eye for capturing this world as he sees it. He is one of the best contemporary photographers.
