The reason I got into taking photographs of headstones was because I wanted to get to know my relatives. My mother took me to cemeteries to show me the graves of my relatives. I took pictures as a way to make a family tree. From there I was able to trace my family history, including the anglization of the family names: Messier became Macey and Le Blanc became White. The family did this a long time ago in order to fit in with the small community of Honey Harbour, Ontario. They originally came from Matane in the Gaspé region, so we figure our family is Acadian in origin.
My goals are to capture images of the graves of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens. I am also interested in those Canadians who have been awarded the Victoria Cross.
