First a coffee. Then an early morning walk around central Halifax and the waterfront. To start the day. For exercise. To enjoy the rhythm of the waking city. Add a camera and a single role of film. 36 exposures. A chance to capture 36 individual images of each morning walk. The artist invites the viewer to share his walk with him, to see what he saw at the beginning of his day, and hopefully to experience some of the same joy the artist feels each and every time he takes a walk through Halifax.

All photographs were taken using black and white film developed at home using Caffenol — a home-made coffee based developer.

About the artist: Harold Klee is a photographic artist working and living in Halifax. After a career as an IT professional, Harold earned his honours BFA in photography at NSCAD University in 2015.
