Forest fires blazed through northern Saskatchewan in the summer of 2015, displacing many people from their homes. Weeks later, people returned to a changed landscape. Parts of the forest had completely burned to ash and in other areas trees were killed, but still standing. A year later new plants have moved in, covering the forest floor with a blanket of green and an abundance of colour, among the remaining blackened sentinels, charred and deformed. This piece honours this remarkable transformation.
