Pictures Woke People Up (with Wendy Ewald) “The pictures woke people up,” Innu elder Elizabeth Penashue said of Wendy Ewald's and my collaborations with the indigenous Innu people of Labrador between 2007 and 2012. Over five years, we worked alongside Innu people to repatriate images of the Innu from elsewhere and to use them to revisit memories and begin to heal old wounds. The pictures and films we produced and found together were repurposed into local exhibitions, outdoor installations, Facebook archives and house-to-house viewings. In a time of great friction and change for the Innu, perhaps pictures can suggest how to move forward and raise important questions. Where are we from? What happened here? How do we adapt our sight and learn to see farther? Where do we go from here? This project explores the convergence of preservation and change, of history and new identity and the practice of social collaboration.
