Still (Where Then Ends and Now Begins)

STILL is a meditation on isolation and loneliness, photographed during the Coronavirus pandemic in the abandoned urban landscapes of Toronto, Canada. Featuring garments by Jordan de Ruiter, STILL is an abstract visual poem that guides us through a rich, raw and emotional journey. Prompting the viewer to reflect on their own personal experiences of distance and isolation, within the vacated urban sphere.

Director’s Vision

It’s hard not to be inspired by the beautiful yet eerie emptiness of our cities during the coronavirus pandemic. Actress Kimberly-Sue Murray and I wanted to take the opportunity to make a piece of art that both explored the vast open urban vistas, but also the inwardness and isolation felt by being distanced from the world at your doorstep.
