  • The natural environment sweeps through this abandoned place, once home to over three thousand people based around a thriving pulp mill. The remains of the town bears its weight upon the vestiges of a landscape and its once prescribed aesthetic value. Ocean Falls is a somber, inquisitive observation of a colonial settlement built upon resource extraction.

    "We imagine the lives under the mortar, but how do we recognize the end of a bottomless silence?"
    - Michel-Rolph Trouillot
