Untitled, 2008
from the series Reconstructions 2

This image was made in my little one room apartment in downtown Montreal. I was in the first year of my MFA and was still trying to adjust to a new city where I didn’t have many close friends. I started writing short stories as a release from the boredom and this image came from one of those stories. In fact, this image is more of an installment in a larger batch of images that tell the story of a girl’s struggle to adulthood in a world where magic and violence, as well as hope and trauma, exist simultaneously. I am really interested in the relationship between storytelling and photography, as well as the ability of photographic images to exist so tenuously between the realms of the real and the imagined. As such, I tend to build my images with metaphorical signs that alone don’t mean that much, but together can open an image to a range of readings and narratives. This building of meaning is also a way for me to create images that are seemingly amiable at first glance, but after closer inspection begin to reveal hints of something darker looming just beneath the surface.
