For this project, I first became curious about my own family’s story of migration. Unfortunately, this story had been lost, my relatives who migrated have passed on and my family knows very little of this story. Migration I was told, was a thing to be forgotten and assimilation was key to acceptance into this new country. Next, I asked my friends who recently migrated to Canada and many were reluctant to tell me their migration stories. For me this was perplexing, migration, leaving your home and moving to a new country, is a pivotal point in a person’s and a family’s history, and something I think should be remembered and shared.
The first video is of my process for scanning and printing large format negatives.
The second video is a follow up to the Howtek Scan Master 4500 drum scanner and Epson V750 scanner video. Within the video I critique the prints from the Epson 9900 printer and the HP 110 Latex printer.
The Migrant Narrative book is now available on Apple iBooks
