Stony Bottom Rocky Point

Stony Bottom Rocky Point is an English translation of an Indian word, and in this case, the name of a village in Quebec. In addition to its reputation for world-class salmon fishing, this village has another distinction: historically high rates of self-inflicted death.

Stony Bottom Rocky Point is a series of large format film-based photographs, a video and an artist publication, comprised of observations and experiments (including some on a potter’s wheel), all of which explore balance and alternating rhythm as metaphors for this difficult topic.
