People & Place is a series of short portraits taken at the Barton Nursing Home in Toronto, where I befriended several people during my grandmother's illness. Simple, intimate, portraits that focus on old age and illness. For me these small instances of are part of a difficult process of observation and understanding.

This is video series is comprised of:
1) Mr. & Mrs. Chu
2) Music
3) Kung Fu Movies
4) Miss Bell
5) Dinner
6) Event
7) Untitled (no sound)

All seven works are available as separate titles upon request.
