Nature photographer Albert Perkins will have a selection of photographs on display at the Maple Ridge library through January.

Perkins, 82, is a native Vancouverite, born in the mining community of Brittania Beach in 1930 but has also lived in Surrey and most recently Maple Ridge, with wife Teresa and his two daughters.

By trade, Perkins worked as a master plumber until his retirement in the early 1990s. Throughout his life he has spent thousands of hours photographing the natural side of the Greater Vancouver region including its scenery, wildlife, birds, and flowers in green houses and in the wild.

His portfolio includes both black and white and colour photography. He built his own darkroom by the age of 15. Following his retirement, he volunteered many hours at Enver Creek High School in Surrey, teaching photographic and dark room to students.
