Art + Practice Workshops: PHOTOGRAPHY with Ruth Kaplan


Art + Practice Workshops: PHOTOGRAPHY with Ruth Kaplan

 
DateWednesday, November 20, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Cost

Free - Space is limited – Advance registration recommended

Location

Marilyn Brewer Community Space 235 Queens Quay West

The Theater of Roxham Road

Roxham Road is an “irregular” border-crossing straddling New York and Quebec, where asylum-seekers attempt to enter Canada. The RCMP have set up a small processing center to accommodate the influx.

As a continuance of my earlier exploration of extended time within refugee shelters as people await their hearings, the recent component of Roxham Road describes the few heightened moments surrounding the crossing. The environment resembles a theatre with a small stage and repeating players – the refugees, Canada Border police, cab drivers from Plattsburgh, various care-givers and people like myself, who are there to document. We are all witnesses.

For the workshop presentation I will discuss the challenges of making humanist documentary images in a charged situation such as this and my experience navigating the difficulties that present themselves.
