Kahnawake on the shore of the St Laurence across from Montreal. The North Shore of Vancouver. The Bow River shoreline in downtown Calgary. Trinity Bay, Newfoundland. These are a few of the vantages from which Norman Ravvin looks beyond contemporary urban and rural landscapes to uncover past and once-possible Canadas, lost voices and vanished ways of living that are made recognizable once again. Through interviews, careful research and a good many miles burning up the roadways, Norman Ravvin offers a view of this country as never seen before.Read More
