Biographical history

By 1985, and perhaps before, Rick was coming up to Whistler as a hairdresser - he worked for Derek's of London in Vancouver and came up to Whistler on the weekends. At some point he became interested in outdoor photography and he became the original postcard photographer for Whistler. He was also heavily involved in Whistler's music scene, choosing the music for the Amsterdam Pub and bringing live bands to play in Whistler. Flebbe was also a great hiker in his cowboy boots, and named Beverly Lake after his wife at the time. Rick's Roost is also named in his honour, a place he used to like to go to look down on the valley.

Custodial history

These photographs were displayed in the Crystal Lodge, Whistler. They were taken down in either December 2011 or January 2012. Some of the photographs went up with the Crystal Lodge in 1986, while others were slightly later, probably in the early 1990s.
