Isabelle Hayeur
Oakville Galleries
11.5 × 10.5 inches
48 pp
Photography, Environment

Each photographic work by Isabelle Hayeur incorporates several images, using software to form an apparently seamless representation. Through her choice of images and themes, Hayeur expresses an anxiety about the way humanity has come to occupy the natural territory. The representation not only of a site but of what has happened to it turns her work into something akin to history painting. A history painting that expresses a moral judgment on the rapid degradation of the natural world while also making an acerbic comment on the residential folly that has led to the exponential growth of the suburbs.

Numerous full-page color plates highlight the scale and detailing of the work.
In English and French.
