I live in the historic town of Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. Being a tourist destination, the imagery associated with this area is often idyllic — replete with sweeping vistas, sunsets and joyous festivals.
This project attempts to venture beyond that postcard-ready representation with an alternative, but equally reverent, look at the town’s less obvious sites and related locations. Here, we see unvarnished living history, back allies, jarring architectural juxtapositions, and a heightened examination (and appreciation) of the everyday.
The title of this series is borrowed from a feature on my photography which was published by Mountain Life Magazine in summer 2016. Several of these images appeared in the article, and additional pieces have been added here to expand upon the forgotten corners theme.

This series was exhibited as a solo exhibition featuring ten large prints. The show was held throughout January and February, 2017, at the Tremont Hall Gallery in Collingwood, Ontario.
