Jan. 1, 2011 will mark 27 months on the road for Alberta photographer Tim Van Horn and he’ll celebrate that milestone in Victoria. The 41-year-old photographer has been traveling across the country in his van photographing Canadians, 5000 so far, for his Canadian Mosaic project. His plan is to stay on the road until he captures 25,000 portraits that he will use to create a giant Canadian flag mosaic in time for the country’s 150th birthday on July 1, 2017. Van Horn, who has travelled from Newfoundland to Nunavut for his project, expect as to sepnd the next few weeks in the greater Victoria area. Residents will recognize Van Horn by his van which sports a collage stripe of his poirtraits around the body. His work can be seen at http://celebratecanada.wordpress.com/.
