A self-portrait dialogue and collaborative project with Donnalee Downe, a contemporary artist and a founder of the Peake Street Studios Collective from Prince Edward Island Canada. The project was initiated  when Donnalee entered an MFA program at the Cardiff School of Art and Design in Wales (2011) –  Her thesis included documenting experiments with distance collaborative art practice.

“From either side of the Atlantic, we upload self-portraits to in our place on flickr. Our images are in dialogue. We don’t talk about this. Ever. We let the images do the talking.” – Donnalee Downe (2012)

“The process of communicating through images over distance disrupts shared understanding – yet it is this interference that seems to reveal the conflict and vulnerability of photography.” – Becka Viau (2012)
