“In nature, everything is connected,” states environmental consultant and photographer Peggy Cameron. “Likewise, this city is an ecosystem. If we harm part of a species, it harms us all.”
Cameron, a longtime member of the Friends of Halifax Common, has shot pictures of every house on the west side of Robie Street between North and South streets — trees, traffic, pedestrians and all — to show that these are real places. Documented like living creatures under dire threat of extinction, more than 100 images of character homes will be hanging all month in a downstairs corridor of the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History as part of Photopolis, Halifax’s biennial photography festival.
