Farewell in Labrador is a visual journey along the coast of Labrador, one of the most isolated places on earth. Situated on the east coast of Canada, the Flat Earth Society believes it to be one of the four corners of the world. A dwindling population of 12,000 inhabits 670 miles of coastline that is frozen solid for six months a year. "Life was hard when the waters around here was full of fish, now that all the fish has gone, life is almost impossible." The Cod Moratorium in 1992 pretty much killed the fishing industry, forcing many young people to leave and find jobs elsewhere. A government settlement program brought the Inuit and Innu nomadic cultures to the brink of extinction, and alcoholism is killing what remaining hope there is. The departure of NATO forces spelled the end of the Air Base and the town that built up around it. Instead of being the main subject, the Labrador coast provided a backdrop in which I explored and captured my own feelings for the landscape, its people and the memories they left behind. The connection between the images, landscapes, portraits, interiors and still-lifes is emotional, eliciting feelings of isolation, longing and loss.
