Nothing is foreign to us

Nothing is foreign to us is an ongoing project exploring the juxtaposition of progressive ideals that led to the development of a community in service to an industrial smelter, and created a foundation for environmental debates. I have been traveling to the small smelter town of Trail in British Columbia for several years, adapting a participant observer’s perspective to produce photography and video of the community and its inhabitants as they preserve the industrial landscape as heritage intertwined with environmental concerns.
