VICISSITUDES is discomfort through transformation. It’s the magnetism of change and yet the resistance to it. The collection portrays the shapes of this experience: not ready, scared, itching, listening, jumping. The ground is in motion beneath our feet but we are not wearing shoes. Will we run or fall?
The photographs in the VICISSITUDES collection feature the unceded, never-surrendered territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən and W̱SÁNEĆ Peoples, who have a historical and ongoing relationship to this land. May this serve as a reminder to walk respectfully on this land and to actively dismantle the impacts of colonial systems here.
