This collection of work, like much of my long exposure photography, is concerned with memory and landscape. Having spent much of my life on the move outside and within Vancouver, I am interested in how location functions as an anchor for memory, particularly in so far as both are unstable, a trait further shared by photography as a medium. This instability is useful in considering sites of longing, confusion or grief. Pinhole photography is particularly suited to these concerns—longer exposure time allows the picture to rewrite itself, constantly shifting to create a porous, uncertain representation. Memory, too, is an analog form—we rewrite each time we recall, creating new stories—new versions of ourselves, where we’ve been, and what happened there.
