Gladys, A Life, 2005 (excerpt)
Running time: 5:20 minutes / SD / colour
In summer of 2004, I had the privilege of spending several days with Gladys Barnes, a 95 year-old native of Trout River Newfoundland. We spent hours in conversation and silence accompanied by the camera as it captured the passing of time. Gladys, a Life, is footage taken from that experience. This portrait was captured while spending hour in conversation and silence as Gladys passed in and out of states of sleep and awakening.
