For most of us, Covid19 has changed how we look at our world and the goods that sustain us.
For me, how we get things and the structures that make it possible - is a 10-year fascination. 

My long term project, Trading Places is an evolving exploration of the travel of essential bulk commodities through the Great Lakes, and St. Lawrence Seaway to the Atlantic and markets beyond. 

As you journey through these images, consider the enormous investment in labour, and infrastructure, the proud, skilled seafarers who bring you these goods, 
our watery highways, and the impact urban planning and gentrification of our shorelines have upon the movement of goods to market. 


My new home - the blue collar town of Port Hawkesbury,  boasts a deep water port and a waterfront that could be a premiere sailing, kite surfing, regatta destination.  "We were joined by Serendipity"  (working title) has me kayaking throughout the Canso Strait documenting through sound story and visuals - the history, opportunity, rise and decline of this fascinating beautiful region. Inspiring change through active engagement, I encourage Locals to use this wonderful recreational asset.
