Aislinn Leggett

Enter the Great Wide Open (Canada, 2012)

The way in which her forebears recorded the Canadian landscape has been definitive for how Aislinn Leggett sees nature in her country. Using landscape photography from the beginning of the 20th century, as well as photos from her own family archive, Leggett composed scenes that give her the opportunity to resurrect the past within the landscape. ENTER THE GREAT WIDE OPEN lays bare elements of the Canadian identity that are still of importance a hundred years later.
