portraits of five roses


Montreal's Farine Five Roses is considered by many an important urban icon to this island. Built in 1946, it has changed hands three times, each of which affected and occasionally threatened the visual presence of it's flashing red lettering. Despite the somewhat isolate location, the building can be seen from selected street level vantage points within the heart of the downtown core. For this portait series, I opted to gaze at its beauty from the quickly changing Peel Basin. I hope you enjoy a sneak peek into my documentation of this timeless structure.
