A retrospective and collaborative project based on Background/Vancouver, a photo-mapping expedition of Vancouver by Michael de Courcy with Taki Bluesinger, Gerry Gilbert, and Glenn Lewis on October, 30 1972. The project consists of the four artists walking three separate paths documenting their experiences in photographs. On October 30, 2012, Vancouver artists, Emilio Rojas, Guadelupe Martinez, and Igor Santizo, revisited this conceptual project. 40 years to the day, these three artists came together to forge a new, fourth path that intersects with the original paths which revisits ideas about Vancouver's identity and history. The retrospective project is entitled, ThisPlace/Vancouver
