Medicine Hat, Alberta in 100 Images

Over the last couple years my passion for documenting my hometown has opened more doors, both literally and figuratively, than I initially would've imagined. Around the Hat, as the series has become known, has grown from a passion project into a detailed photographic library of the locations that make Medicine Hat distinct. 

These 100 images don't sum up Medicine Hat by a long shot, but they do represent the tip of the iceberg in an artistic and stylized photo series that spans seasons, includes thousands upon thousands of original captures, and with each passing day becomes a bit more historical in its own right. This is the Hat as I've seen it.
