DistURBANce, by the Ottawa-based photographic collective Studio Zone V, examines the contemporary urban landscape undergoing relentless alteration. Population grows, displac- ing farmland and previously undisturbed natural sites. In the city, small houses are torn down and replaced by those with significant footprints, or multiplex townhouses. Constant road and public utility construction creates disorder, while previous industrial sites and small businesses become obsolete and derelict. The result is a profound interplay of disruption and resilience.
