These photographs are part of an ongoing survey of contemporary Canada entitled You Seem To Be Where I Belong. Peering around unassuming corners and down quiet roads, these images present an unexpected view on how our sometimes out-of-date and sometimes out-of-place occupation of the Canadian landscape connects and brings us together as a society.

Having grown up in a small town in Northern Ontario, these images recall memories of my childhood, when the ideology of the landscape and built environment was not always based on something new, well-designed, or planned. Living under the pressures of upward mobility in Canada’s largest urban centre for the past 15 years, this series represents an escape, of sorts, from where I am today, and a reconnection with landscapes and environments that I left behind both in matter and mind. At its essence, this body of work is a reflection on the Canadian landscape and small town life — laying bare a country that is in one light authentic and charming, and in another troubled and enigmatic.
