Finding a Green Photo

Barbara Reimer's avatar Barbara Reimer

Using "recycled" film developed in coffee and photographing in garbage dumps as well as tourist and known ecological "eco-aware" sites and communities, across the first and third worlds, this project begins a complex arguement about sustainability, community, history and site through images of landscape. This collection of images is photographed in: La Chureca, Managua, Casa Llanta, El Carizal, San Juan del Sur, Finca El Peten, near Jinotega, in Nicaragua; The Ness Creek Music Festival, 2009 & 2010 (in the Boreal Forest, Northern Saskatchewan); The Saskatoon City Dump Outskirts and the Blackstrap Provincial Park (Skihill), Saskatchewan, Canada; and the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada .
