For the past six years Geoffrey James, one of Canada's pre-eminent photographers, has travelled the country confronting the many realities of Canadian life. Canada is glimpsed from a train window, seen at a demolition derby, or a high-school prom. The photographs bear witness to Canada's past as a dominion while also looking at the sometimes provisional way the future is being built. James's colour photographs display an uncanny wit that isolates innocent moments and seemingly banal locations, and speak volumes about our nation's precarious identity.
