Scott Chandler / Griffintown

Griffintown, 2008-2014

Griffintown is a former vibrant, working-class neighbourhood in Montréal. In 1962 the area was controversially re-zoned as “light industrial” and since fallen into further economic decline. This series was created during a period of plans to demolish the area and replace it with new residential and commercial buildings, despite much debate and doubt in its sustainability.

Griffintown shows a neighbourhood with an identity based in the past, an aimless present, and an uncertain future.
