The exhibition is the culmination of several years of exploration that began while attending a photographer’s workshop in Shamper’s Bluff, New Brunswick. There were a number of old houses in the area and each time I came upon one of these run-down reminders of a time gone by, I felt drawn to explore it.
I take a documentary approach to the crumbling structures and objects, photographing them as I find them—alone and in silent need to share their story. Out of respect for the environment, I rely solely on my camera and the natural light to capture the moment.
My photographic technique is impressionistic. Each image has a dreamy, luminous quality that evokes a painterly effect. This approach works to underscore the fragility of life inside—and outside—the house.
