Publisher's description

“Amazing about this series, smoothly, of great simplicity, describing places that follow one another without lyricism, but never flat. Fragments that accumulate where the details go hand in hand with the absence of climactic moments.

The narration by the image is unable to directly tell the disorder of the world. The latter is essentially nocturnal, blurred by fog or forest fires, that is to say, it escapes view, definitely resistant to photography. We must make do! Then the medium rediscovers its primary quality, the silence that accompanies violence, in what cannot be stated openly." 

François Cheval, excerpts.

"I wanted to get out of the limited sphere that I had constructed in my previous works, to enter into the daily reality of the people who live along this road, and thus understand a little bit what their lives have been and continue to be. be, even if this project poses many problems and questions. In fact, it is precisely for these reasons that I wanted to go there.

Often the places where many of the bodies were found remain unmarked. They were ordinary, banal places, passing unnoticed. This banality of the sites was disturbing, very moving. It is this “triviality” that I wanted to photograph, to reveal the fortuitous and marginal details of the road, to grant these places a feeling of restlessness and ambiguity. The shadow of what had oozed along this road tapped with its spider legs against the glass jar of my imagination...

At night, the light from car headlights entered my room and woke me with a start, my heart beating: I began to imagine that someone was following me, that someone had noticed my presence.

Between rumors of large-scale sexual exploitation and violence at the hands of the RCMP, serial killer truckers and drug dealings that had gone into a tailspin, I had been told stories so brutal and horrific that my thoughts panicked in a whirlwind of paranoia and fear. Like others before me, I wondered if there was a larger conspiracy beyond these women and girls killed.

The next morning I emerged from the hotel and the sun rising over the mountains temporarily dispelled my night terrors. The indifferent but bewitching landscape urged me to question the secrets and unsolved atrocities that haunt the Road of Tears."

Kourtney Roy, excerpts.
