YORK is a collaboratively-created body of work that considers notions of privacy, permanence, and intimacy. I have the pleasure of working with Edmonton-based photographer and painter Marian Switzer on this project. Our exploration of the York Hotel’s rooms and the objects in the space draws on our shared concern with the use of objects and images to examine the various competing ‘truths’ of place and identity.

This project has its own virtual home: You can find images and writing for this project here.

This work was first exhibited at Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture in Edmonton AB July 25 – August 31 2013.
