In May of 2017, I became the first Artist in Residence for the City of Edmonton Cemeteries. I produced a body of work on my artistic interpretation of the seven municipal cemeteries and the one traditional burial ground. Shooting with both film and digital, I captured a variety of the elements found within cemeteries – from the landscape to the decorative work of monuments and grave markers. Working both in a studio space in the Niche Building at Mount Pleasant Cemetery and my darkroom, the work produced during this residency was in exhibitions throughout the City of Edmonton and Calgary in late 2017 and 2018.
