I have been on a bunch of factory sites, industrial facilities, warehouses etc. and I really enjoy the experience of meeting the people, finding out their stories. As a photographer, I also get to see a lot of neat things and get access to places most people never get to see. One might not think seeing a mail processing at 4am isn’t much fun, I think it is just great.
The goal of this shoot was to show all of the members of the union in the various roles they perform for Canada Post. There is a lot of moving pieces to get a letter delivered and these are the people that make that happen.
This shoot was conducted over a number of days in both Winnipeg and Toronto. We traveled through numerous postal facilities and along routes the mail carriers service. I think we take for granted just what a massive undertaking that mail delivery is and how important it is.
