Tree Planting is a record of my summers spent in northern Canada in which I engaged in the communal activity of reforesting as a means of income. In this project, I combine straight photographs with photographs recording “tableaux” scenes I created with small sculptural figures set in a fabricated landscape. These vignettes extend beyond the photographs I took during my summers in rural Manitoba, illustrating what I experienced both visually and emotionally. I conceived of the project as an installation, forming a large narrative displayed on curved walls.
