With a dream to explore new lands with his camera, Chris Harris moved to the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia in 1984. The region’s two mountain ranges, a plateau of grasslands, lakes and ancient volcanoes, and a coastline rich in natural and cultural history, still have him finding new horizons.
At the core of the region has been another dream, held by a very few and executed in silence over three decades at land-use negotiation tables: to preserve the largest, most biodiverse contiguous wilderness complex in the temperate world as a blueprint for environmental resiliency. The proposed region held an incredible ten distinct bio-geoclimatic zones. It is now a reality, and is call the Chilcotin Ark.
Chris is now on a tour of North America promoting his new book ‘British Columbia’s Cariboo Chilcotin Coast’, and introduces readers and viewers to the Chilcotin Ark – a photographic journey set to music and narrated by Chris explaining what makes this region of BC so unique. Undiscovered lands that have never before in the history of mankind seen human’s tread, rolling grasslands that stretch as far as the eye can see, and glacial lakes newly exposed due to climate change.
