Artist Statement:

    Working with a cast of seven men from Canmore, Alberta, ages 70 to 78, ranging from a high-flying judge to a polish miner and ex-prisoner of war, Men looks at the fragile nature of old men. It contrasts nature’s infinite time with the shortness of human mortality and sets the physical deterioration of the men’s bodies against the obvious strength of character.
