With a big emphasis on water based photography, images of mountains, lakes, rivers, and oceans, and the salmon, trout and other life forms that inhabit these areas make up a lot of Eiko Jones’ body of work. While all aspects of the natural world are of interest, underwater photography of Pacific Salmon has become one of his primary objectives. Living in Campbell River has it’s advantages as it is centered in prime Salmon habitat and all five species of salmon  make their way into the surrounding rivers each year. The salmon and the watersheds of British Columbia that they return to have become a central driving theme for Eiko.

Leaves, sticks, water plants, and even fish have all been captured in this way. So it was just a matter of time before I made a decision to showcase this phenomenon in some particular way.
