Entry Description

This project is about journey.. Shot over three winters and seven trips ,it is an personal interpetation of an isolated peninsula in the province of Quebec , Canada where pioneers from France and England came to settle and fish cod. It has no major airport and hence has remained true to its roots and culture. The winter is a time when noone visits, and so this project is my journey to a potent landscape filled with the iconography of history and culture emerging out of the snow.
