Photographer: Tayu Hayward
Tayu Hayward is happiest when in the mountains with camera in hand, tent in pack. Grateful to call Vancouver home, and to have grown up exploring this incomparable backyard that is BC, he now travels afar for equal parts of the year, seeking solace in the people and places that defy the status quo. For Earth’s entirety is under our hammer, and try we must to change course from our rapacious ways. We are ultimately lost without the teachings of Mother Earth, without communion and reverence for the wilds that bore us – it is our birthright, our most essential story. And Natives though we may be, we are long estranged from Nature’s narrative. So it is his abiding hope that through his work, he can help give voice to this bewilderingly beautiful Home we must do so much more to listen to.
