Library Shelf Location 18.KOES
Publication Date 2002

The photographs from the series Row Housing document the area around Resolute on Cornwallis Island in the far north of Arctic Canada. An area made famous through Sir John Franklin's disastrous attempt to find the Northwest Passage in 1845. With images of Franklin's winter camp, abandoned military stations from the cold war, and the only building realized as part of the Swedish architect Ralph Erskine's model town - the photographs from Row Housing aim at capturing the ghost frames resonating in and around the town of Resolute. The images depict the area suspended between visible and invisible traces of history, and the newly gained independence as part of the Inuit state Nunavut in 1999.
