the photo-based work snapshot was installed and shown at le palais des congrés à montréal as part of an organized by massivart & summit génération d’idées, 2011.

snapshot depicts a vista of forgotten industry from a national park in the north of england. the image itself, taken on a low-resolution point-and-shoot camera, becomes heavily pixelated when enlarged to its present size, visibly revealing its digital composure. printed across hundreds of photographs, the view, at once impressive, loses all significance within its new context and what is left is an exaggerated portrait of experience and reality.
