  • About the work

Chromogenic print.

This chromogenic print is part of a set of 15 photographs. It is the 5th print in an edition of 7.

The industrial facade of a shipping yard and seawall. Silos and freight cars line up against the background of a pale blue sky. This image is one of series of landscape photographs taken from the porthole of a ship sailing the St. Lawrence River from Iles de la Madeleine to the Port of Montreal. Hickcox presents the porthole as a viewing device mimicking a lens, isolating observation and the movement of the ship. The porthole replaces the framing mechanism of the camera, while the movement of the ship provides a constructed vantage point for viewing. The distortions in color and the markings on the images are caused by both the thickness of the porthole's glass as well as the effects of salt water and weathering. The shadow of the ship, too, is often visible in the image, imposing itself atop the landscape it glides past.
