Along with the debt to Clergue that Culy mentions, there's a haunting reference to the painting of the abstract expressionists. Since the photos are black and white, the two artists that come first to mind are Kline and Motherwell. While you can easily discern the figures Culy photographed, they're presented as abstractions, and they pack a similar wallop to the New York school paintings.

Culy’s book presents and preserves an unnoticed world of design in nature, further called to our attention by the use of primordial black and white photography without the distraction of color.

Culy’s photographic eye paired with Mother nature gives the viewer an unique picture of Stanley Park the casual visitor misses.

He has captured images of forms made by ice and trees that are absolutely breathtaking.

His work truly hits the mark.
