The Fish in the Water are Thirsty: Untitled (Fishing)

Lorraine Gilbert

BIRTH PLACE Moselle, Grostenquin, France

Ottawa-based photographer Lorraine Gilbert’s series The Fish in the Water are Thirsty began when she became part owner of a home in the Laurentians, out of which she collaboratively ran the Boreal/Art Nature Artist-Run center and its residencies. The series is a close observation of that land and its changing seasons. Known for her photographs of British Columbia’s forest industry, here we see a different relationship with nature, where nature is not wild but enculturated.
