About ‘Castle building’:
We found a clearing in the forest;
a place we used to know.
A lot has changed,
but I can tell that he is happy.
Castle-building, an ongoing body of work, is an attempt at revisiting the past and redefining notions of home and family. Working with an accumulation of photographs, the project serves as a visual documentation of memories. It combines photographs of my hometown in New Brunswick with photographs of my new-found home in and around the city of Montreal.
