As Artist-in-Residence at OCAD, (Ontario College of Art and Design), the work June Clark is doing and which she hopes to complete in the next few months, began in Paris. She has always been interested in the vagaries of the images that are produced from photo booths, and this led her to begin a diary recording of her thoughts during her year in Paris. She began going to photo booths in the city and once a week made a portrait of herself attaching these images to the diary page for that day.
The variety in the quality of the images and the fragments of writing create a mysterious story of their own – not a running history but a quick and unexpected “snap” of a part of the events of the day. The text fragments with the photographs become new, distinct images.
