This project examines how economic and social change is inscribed in Vancouver’s architecture.


Since 2007 my photo-based work has interrogated how societies express themselves through their built environments, and how that expression, once manifested, persists and changes through time.


I used analog 35mm film for these images’ initial capture. Yet their presentation here is contingent on the most contemporary of technology: scanning negatives using my MacBook and uploading the resultant files online.


For the 2018 Capture Photography Festival, I printed them on 24”x36” sheets of aluminum using a recently invented dye infusion process.


In this way, the tension between old and new is inscribed not only in the content of the photos, but in their existence as objects.
