During the winters of 2011 and 2015 I traveled to Canada to visit my mother, who emigrated to the city of Winnipeg to have a new life with her Canadian husband Patrick. During those periods I made road trips from the city of Vancouver to the city of Toronto on buses and trains.  I wanted to explore the relationship between the cities and the hard winters that the inhabitants and my mother have to face every year. During those trips I took pictures with a plastic camera and 120mm black and white film. -42 degrees was the lowest temperature I experienced. Canada. 2011 & 2015.
