Jeff Friesen art has received worldwide recognition for his eloquent photo series featuring a journey through the Canadian landscape.

The art prints titled ‘The Canadian: Ghost Train Crossing Canada’ feature a toy train Jeff toted around in a bag. At each stop in the trip Jeff pauses to set up the toy train and make it appear to be an actual train moseying on Canadian soil. At first glance it is hard to recognize the train is not real and in fact a toy set-up to resemble one. The Canadian landscape is a gorgeous backdrop to Jeff’s train set. The foliage, rocks and bodies of water are vibrant, fluid and manifest a magical journey for the miniature train.

The train is perfectly placed in each spot to appear a natural part of the shot and it is astonishing to see how cohesive Jeff was able to make the shots. In several shots the train is aligned on a tree trunk and it is hard to imagine it wasn’t meant to be there.

Jeff Friesen art transports the viewer into a magical world of make believe and his miniature train shows off the beauty of the wilderness of Canada.
