This series about Toronto's Lower Don River Valley comprises over 75 photographs. This urban photographic exploration addresses the Don Valley as a complex site that includes natural habitat, the Don River and its ecosystem, issues of land use and human presence (both visible and invisible), and industrial use of the Lower Don River Valley through images of man-made structures such as the rail line, bridges, and buildings (both permanent and temporary). 

The series reflects the diverse and complicated nature of the Lower Don River Valley as a site of constant change. The images document various fragments of life in the Don Valley and along the river, focusing on the marginality, ephemerality, and liminality that characterize such urban borderlands throughout four seasons. 

A selection of images from the series was exhibited at the CRH Gallery, Evergreen Brick Works, in Toronto during the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, April 27-June 1, 2017.
