Thank you to everyone involved with these awarding bodies for their support of my work.

It’s been a while since my last post. I could say I’ve been busy, but the truth is that I’ve been occupied. I spent some time in Alberta, continuing my ongoing photo essay about the cultural, social and environmental impacts the the Oil Sands are having upon indigenous communities. The work was going well until everything changed with a phone call. I had to come home to say goodbye to someone close to me, despite the fact that they would never be able to hear those words. It’s funny how your roots can scare you more than all those darkened, dangerous places out there.
I spent December bouncing around between family gatherings, assignments and seeing some good ol’ friends as the Holiday Season descended upon us all. I wish it could have been a holiday in every sense of the word, but there was just too much conflict to allow that to be possible. I suppose that’s a feeling that most of us can relate to.
