The Resettling series is my response to Resettlement and the specific individual act of moving homes to a new location. I photographed buildings that had been floated over Middle Arm from Brake’s Cove to Cox’s Cove on Newfoundland’s west coast Bay of Islands. I printed an image of each building, placed it within a bottle and then re-photographed this situation, layering each over a different ground.
