Habitus is a series of digital photographs of duck blinds that were taken on Wolfe Island, a small community near Kingston, Ontario. The duck blind, (or hide) presents an iconic image of rural culture that is familiar to hunters and inhabitants of communities that are located around bodies of water. Often decorated with natural camouflage materials such as rushes, reeds, branches and paint, these structures are used to disguise hunters.
