Corner is the final bookwork in a series inspired by MacCallum living in Corner Brook’s Townsite area on the west coast of Newfoundland. Between 1924-34 the pulp mill built 150 homes to house the mill management and skilled labourers. MacCallum photographed in several Townsite homes, all the same type-4 model as the one she lived in, allowing the rare opportunity to record the evolution of interior aspects of these homes. Corner also explores the paradoxical phenomena of conformity and individualization that occurs in a company town.
Corner's images are printed using the unique process of photogravure. Marlene is one of the few Canadians using this process that hand prints photographic images from fifteen photogravure plates hand printed on Somerset paper.
