The Heights of Abraham

Continuous project, 2019
With support from the Media Archive for Central England

The Heights of Abraham is a documentary project that examines altering perspectives associated with historical and monumental landscapes.
With the grounds of the Plains of Abraham of Quebec - Canada, positioned against the valley of the Heights of Abraham of Matlock Bath- England, the project parallels the two sites and their corresponding place names. Through the re-positioning of content - personal narratives, lead mine shafts, a cable car and archival footage sourced at the Media Archives for Central England, the work references the tourist gaze underlining the capitalisation of neocolonialism in the 21st century.
