Dominion Street brings together an extensive body of work by emerging Moncton-based photographer Jaret Belliveau. Documenting his family over the course of five years, Belliveau originally focused on daily life until his mother was diagnosed with cancer. The images that developed out the experience convey the internal workings of a family’s struggle with illness and ultimately life after personal trauma. Included alongside Belliveau’s striking colour documentary portraits is a collection of old found family photographs. This juxtaposition of two forms of the autobiographical image highlights the slippery relationship between the vernacular and the documentary.
