Description

Date/Time: February 20, 2000, 11:07 a.m.
This Notman photograph interested me visually from the first, but I also wanted to rephotograph it because this building is now a hospital. It staggers me that this was a private residence in Notman's time, when so many people in Montreal were living in dire poverty. In my photograph the fence and the building match up in every detail, which is quite remarkable - only the gate has been widened. Even the snow is collecting in the same way and in the same spots. As usual, the shadows told me precisely when to take my photograph.
