Village explores a complex web of language politics of Canada and the very format of a photobook.
Language is both means for communication and a platform for politics in Canada. Especially in Quebec, where a forgotten layer of indigenous linguistic history lies. Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt explore this delicate legacy employing the use of documentary photography. It includes using the photographic caption in a conceptual way and locates the project within the history of subjective documentary, especially quoting Robert Frank’s famous The Americans in its references.
In its core Village is a document of certain time and place, thus by extension a project of documentary photography. Between the politics of language and acuteness of vision, Village suggests layers of conflicting meanings on its apparently two-dimensional surface.
