Point Pelee Transitional Lands: I have been photographing in Point Pelee National Park for over ten years. Point Pelee has a parallel history to Toronto Islands, with a different outcome. Once a vibrant summer community, the land was purchased from cottagers in the 1970s in order to develop a national park. Today, Point Pelee is being slowly stewarded into a Carolinian forest, creating areas of woodlands, wetlands and savannah. Over the last ten years, I have observed and documented the changes taking place and have an extensive collection of still images documenting the layers of human and natural history. Chromogenic prints, two limited editions, 40" x 50" and 30" x 40".

The Artist wish to thank the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosauonee peoples for the use of their land in the making of this work.
