Tropical Saskatoon

When I first moved here six months ago, I noticed that there are many indoor places trying to mimic environments that are not natural to Saskatoon. Whether it is lush astroturf greens at the mini golf at Market Mall, drywall stalactites at the Cave Restaurant or plastic palm trees at Jax nightclub, these are environments that are foreign to the city. I thought it was interesting to have such an abundance of these make believe “natural” places. Was it so Saskatoonians can escape the winter into a place with lush palm trees and play some mini golf? Or have a romantic dinner within Mediterranean like cave formations? I decided to take photographs of these environments and place them within actual familiar sites around Saskatoon. The images of the city were taken from found postcards.
