Here is a blurb about “Relocation“.
Relocation is a photography collaboration that is punctuated by oppositions that exist within an enforced yet volatile harmony, much like the city they illustrate.
The project originated through the acknowledgement of similar circumstances between disconnected people, a recognition of the forces and circumstances that bind, connect and draw people to their new, often imposed, home, Ottawa.
This body of work is a series of six large-scale constructed photographs, depicting fictional narratives set in the Ottawa urban landscape and derived from the subjects influences and reasons for relocating to said city.
The cities formalistic and functional architecture contrasted with its lush and feral green-spaces is a primary visual theme found throughout the work.
The subjects are fully immersed with this landscape and use it to tell of their connection to it.
They have re-interpreted the factually realities of why these people now inhabit this particular city using carefully selected locations, situational ambiguity and natural light to create a series of narrative portraits.
This involved the use of Ottawans, props and large-format film cameras to produce the high-detail images.
