Underneath The Ruby Cliff
North East of Lake Ontario and slightly East of Toronto lays an evolving peninsula of recycled material, a manmade landscape of concrete and metal. The new formation, relatively young compared to the neighbouring city heights, grows day by day within the freshwater lake. Three port workers whom regulate the land collect the intriguing "gems and jewel's", the eroded rock and glass that they find. This landscape becomes a view on humanities ongoing effort of sustainability, whilst the workers collection is reminiscent of shell collecting along many a beach shoreline.

This project was part of the Transatlantic Exhibition which was created to celebrate work made over a period of time In Canada, by both British and Canadian photographers at the Old Ambulance Depot Gallery, Edinburgh. FORMAT portfolio review and IdeasTap also invited this work to its festival.
