Highway 2 is both a transportation and cultural artery for southern Alberta. Through this collection of recent images taken on and around this road to LA (Lethbridge, Alberta), photographer Kort Woycheshin shows how the political divide has grown since the COVID-19 global health pandemic.

Visitors are invited to follow this roadside journey exploring themes of Canadian childhood, rural life, politics, religion, and isolation. These photographs explore Woycheshin’s nostalgic fondness for rural life, along with shifting political views that have altered the concept of Canadian identity.
