Artist's Description

Canon XT, Canon 50mm lens

“This piece was photographed May 28, 2008, in the city of St. Thomas, Ontario, after a protest to keep the hundred-thirty-three year old heritage site, Alma College, from being destroyed. Around 12:05pm, Alma College was set on fire, and all that remained were the ruins of the former all girls school, and my former kingergarten. Around 1:00 pm May 29, 2008, the ruins were knocked down, and Alma College was no more than a memory and photographs. In this photograph, a police officer looks on at the the still smouldering ruins of one of St. Thomas’ greatest landmarks, and beautiful heritage buildings.”
