Select Dimensions

This fine-art photographic print captures a rare and fascinating glimpse into the industrial history of Ontario's Niagara region, with a captivating view of an old single oil well on a clear and cloudless spring day. The black and white photograph showcases the unique character of the landscape, with a single operating well enclosed in a fence and surrounded by flat farmland stretching out towards Lake Ontario in the distance.

The image focuses on the old oil well, a rare sight in Southern Ontario and a testament to the region's industrial heritage. The well is a striking contrast to the rural landscape surrounding it.

As a photographer, my goal was to capture the industrial landscape's stark beauty while highlighting the delicate balance between industry and agriculture. Through black and white photography, I aimed to create a timeless and classic feel, inviting the viewer to reflect on the past and the present and to appreciate the region's unique character.

The history of oil in Ontario dates back to the mid-19th century when the first oil well was drilled near Petrolia in Southwestern Ontario. Over the years, the industry grew and expanded, and today, it continues to play a vital role in the province's economy.

This fine art print is a tribute to the unique character of Ontario's industrial landscape and a reminder of the critical role that industry has played in shaping the region's history and identity. Whether displayed in a home or office, it captivates and inspires the viewer to a world of industrial beauty and historic charm.
