Photographer Polek Rybczynski is holding a signing for his book of images from Pemberton, Valley of Light.

It takes place at Armchair Books on Friday, Dec. 9, at 5 p.m.

Rybczynski took it on as a passion project in 2014, with the aim of shooting one photograph per day around the Pemberton Valley, and spent 2015 turning the results into a coffee table book.

He self-published the book, which was funded thanks to crowd funding on Indiegogo.
