Josee Schryer - Sur-la-rouge
After a twelve-year separation from her father, photographer Josée Schryer returned to Grenville-sur-la-Rouge in Quebec, Canada, with a daughter that he had never met and a deep longing for the landscape of her childhood. Through the uncomfortable weight of their past mistakes and decisions, the artist and her father reconnect. The narrative is framed by green, forested hills and narrow roads. Winter arrives and snowy landscapes form a backdrop for scattered deer and a cosy, wood-panelled house. We observe a young girl as she discovers this new world, wandering among the rocks outdoors or sitting patiently, piecing together a jigsaw puzzle. Slowly, the distance melts away.
