For 21 days I was travelling through the provinces of Ontario and Quebec seeking for Canada’s First Nations and its storytellers in order to find out more about the origins of this country. Far away from in herited stereotypes I wanted to pose a new vision of what it means to be indigenous nowadays. Blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation, my portraits of the First Na tions reconnect with their cultural and ancestral past while positioning them in a new field of power.
I initiated a dialogue with every protagonist of 21 days, seeking their thoughts on the notion of identity.
I captured them in both geographically remote and urban settings opposing their mindsets with still life landscape scenarios as well as with travellers’ per spectives on the country. 21 days is a story of resilien ce, a continuing struggle to combat prevailing ster eotypes in order to establish and retain identity and to keep the legacy alive.
