Part photographic biography and part socio-economic microscope, photographer Thomas Gardiner's exploration of Western Canada's small towns and communities is much more than it seems. Who would've thought that back in the 1940's, the province of Saskatchewan was elected as North America's first socialist government that in turn managed to survive and prosper during the economic troubles that the rest of North America faced during the '70s. However, during the early '80s, ideologies shifted to a conservative government and so began the downfall and decay. 

Gardiner's series focuses on the current state of his home in an often sad and desperate look into communities that once prospered but are now in a day to day struggle.
