Views From Home: Facing North (2019) records changing views from the filmmaker’s Toronto home over two decades and multiple seasons, moving from analogue film photographic studies to digital media practices as years of construction and redevelopment of the visible landscapes unfold. Key historical moments are cited to sound effects and ambient music. A part of this work was previously shown at Gallery 44 Members Space, Toronto. Below is the trailer. The short film is distributed by Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC).
Here is a link to a new visual essay, Among the Ruins, published in the online journal The Goose (2018). An early version of this work was presented at the 2011 Green Words/Green Worlds conference in Toronto. The images were shown as part of the 2013 exhibition, Abject Transformations, at Arcadia Art Gallery, Toronto.
Please join me at the 2014 Female Eye Film Festival and photography exhibition, launching at Artscape, 180 Shaw Street, Toronto, on June 17 from 7 pm to midnight. My film screens at the Royal Cinema, 608 College Street, Toronto, 2 pm on Saturday, June 21.
This exhibition is the culmination of a 10-year photographic documentation of a particular view from my home on Toronto’s waterfront, facing north. In the decade between 2004 to 2014, the visible landscape has changed tremendously, as a once wide view of the city gradually becomes an increasingly enclosed space.

Welcome to the new version of my website. I have included elements of the previous site and will gradually add new galleries, texts, links, and film projects. To begin, here is a new gallery of recent work, an ongoing series of pinhole images.
