Lockers, Buffalo Color

Photography; Inkjet Print, 2007

Objects of Consequence stems from an intent to depict former industrial workplaces through the prism of its vacated workforce. The project involves studies of decommissioned complexes situated in the "rust belt" regions of Canada and the United States, primarily steel mills, generating stations and chemical refineries.

Visits were made without any formal authorization from property owners which allowed Emond to photograph when he wished. This self-guided technique permitted him to examine locations independently as if he was rummaging through its drawers after hours, piecing together fragments of what life in these environments had been during both their operation and in their final days.
