Long regarded as Canada’s "steel city," Hamilton, Ontario, is now in transition. In 2015, I went to the city to further my research around Canada's industrial history. These images present some of my immediate interpretations of Hamilton’s industrial sector and surrounding neighbourhoods. Both of the moment and instantly timeless, these photographs are highly descriptive, yet they do nothing to grapple with Hamilton’s shifting economy or the social troubles that come as a result of deindustrialization. Ultimately, they provide a personal view of an unfamiliar environment and explore what it means to document place.
This work was conceived of and produced as a small book. A selection of the images are presented here.
