Klondike Redux

Archival inkjet prints, variable dimensions

The series Klondike Redux examines the intersection of history and culture in Dawson City, Yukon, a small, geographically isolated town approximately 400 km south of the Arctic Circle.

As site of the famed 1896 Klondike Gold Rush, the community is in constant negotiation with a fin de siècle mythology that now serves as a valued asset helping to power an economy equally as reliant on tourism as gold mining. To date, my images picture the community solely during the winter months—when the vast array of visitors are absent—leaving the relics of past culture to imprint themselves on the habits of daily life.
