Lindsey Bond’s photographic work explores socio-geographic issues in Canada. She creates pervasive imagery that exposes our need to reconnect with the ground we live on. Recently, Lindsey was a guest artist on Train of Thought, a community arts journey across Canada, focusing on collaborations and alliances between First Nation and settler artists and communities. Lindsey received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. www.lindseybond.ca
Deep Bay Residency Project
Residency dates: September 5 to 18
During her residency, Lindsey will be working on Negotiating Spaces: Ghost Lines, a series of photographs and collected anecdotes investigating defunct rail-lines in Manitoba. This project strives to create an alternate archive of images and stories not found in the history books, rather, those that live in the memory of the people and the land affected by the railway. In Riding Mountain National Park, Treaty 2 Territory, the public will be invited to share recollections, on postcards, of rail travel and the effect of the railway on their local community. www.negotiatingthestoryline.com
