Brett Gundlock didn’t know anything about immigration. He had not lived the immigrant experience himself and he didn’t know anyone who had. His limited views on the subject came from what he had heard during his occasional chats with cab drivers and by listening to their stories.
But after working on a photo series about Neo-Nazi skinheads in Canada, the young Canadian photographer had some questions. For three years, he had listened to their “extremist” ideas about immigration and now he had a desire to learn more about it.
“Our country is built on immigration,” says Gundlock. “Immigration is extremely important in (the) history of Canada and will be in the future. So this project is just to contribute to that conversation.”
