“Crossroads is an installation of large composite photographs chronicling journeys through southern Ontario’s back roads and ghost towns. These landscapes stand as a witness to history, and marked on their forgotten gravel roads and abandoned buildings is a memory of human presence. Located at spaces ‘in between’, these lost roads and vacant villages break down the connections between existing towns, creating empty voids that map the edge of where the world seems to have already started to end. Employing a fictional, post-apocalyptic road trip as narrative vehicle, these prints explore one family’s relationship to the inheritance of the past, and the deals they make at the crossroads for their future.”
