“Four years ago, I was leaving for the airport after saying goodbye to my mother. She was dying of cancer. On the long drive across the windblown Alberta prairie, I found myself distracted by flapping remnants of plastic bags, caught in barbed-wire fences that lined the ditches. Snag.”—Wes Bell. In a state of contemplating mortality, and in the context of his mother’s terminal illness, these shreds of plastic took on deep significance to Bell. Snag became a three-year project by the celebrated photographer from Medicine Hat.
