As a photographer, I am drawn to the minimalist aesthetic and objective approach of typologies, as seen in the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher. My focus is on lighthouses, and I seek to capture their unique forms and textures through the lens of my camera. I prefer to photograph on grey days during the winter, as the overcast light highlights the architectural details and creates a sense of isolation, which reflects the isolation and resilience of the structures. The winter season adds an extra layer of atmosphere, with snow and ice adding texture and giving the lighthouses an almost ethereal quality. The lighthouses stand alone, strong and enduring, in some of the most remote and inhospitable places along the coast. Through my photography, I aim to pay homage to the lighthouse guardians who lived and worked in these structures, often in isolation, and whose contribution to maritime safety and navigation has been essential. Their lives were marked by a sense of duty and sacrifice, and my work aims to capture that sense of isolation and perseverance in these structures. I also aim to capture the sense of contemplation and peace that comes from being by the water, and the way lighthouses can inspire feelings of calm and contemplation. My work is also a reflection on the disappearing architecture, as many lighthouses are being decommissioned and replaced with modern technology, and I want to capture their beauty and significance before they disappear. I travel across Canada to document these structures, which are both functional and artistic, in an effort to preserve their legacy for future generations.
