Philosophy meets photography in Nich Hance McElroy’s shots of America

Looking at the tranquil photographs taken by Vancouver based philosophy graduate Nich Hance McElroy makes one ask oneself the age-old and head-scratching question: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” Like the famous philosophical dilemma, McElroy’s photo series seeks knowledge of the unobserved, and does this through documenting undisturbed moments and spaces; places where sounds seem to cease to exist, where not even the clicking of McElroy’s shutter is able to penetrate into the hushed serenity of his compositions.
