Brief Description of Work:

Tortured by Sidewalks is a film about portraiture. It is the first part in a series of North American landscape films that I have been shooting since 2003. The central aim of the film is to make a filmic "sketch" of one of the most photographed landscapes on earth - Peggy's Cove. The film was shot on Super 8 and Pxlvision in order to convey my reaction to this striking landscape.
